Why Positive Peace?

IEP's Positive Peace research demonstrates that lasting peace cannot be built merely on the absence of violence, but rather requires a supportive social system inclusive of factors such as good governance, access to needed services, a sound business environment and respect for the right of others.

Rotary's Areas of Focus - peacebuilding and conflict prevention, but also disease prevention and treatment, water, sanitation and hygiene, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy, and community economic development - all integral investments in Positive Peace.

IEP's empirical research helps illuminate these drivers of peace, providing data that peacebuilders can utilise to enhance the impact of their initiatives.
