Petition Establish a United Kingdom Ministry of Peace
Establishing a Ministry of Peace would place the pursuit of peace at the heart of Government. In 2001 in a little publicised initiative, the Government set up United Kingdom global and African conflict prevention pools; bringing together conflict prevention work of many Government Departments.
A Ministry of Peace would examine how we can challenge the culture of conflict that has grown up in our society at every level, the Government could divert resources to empower our children, raise the consciousness of our communities, and our international partners to ensure that mediation is the first response to conflict.
"...we could begin the process of transforming the modern world’s first imperial power into the world’s leading peace power...” cross-party 10 Minute Bill 2003
