Building Peace through Communication and Information

Power of Peace: Building Peace through Communication and Information

UNESCO, in association with the Government of Indonesia, is hosting a Global Forum in Jimbaran, Bali, Indonesia, on 21-23 January 2007. The purpose is to identify practical measures to harness the mass media and information and communication tools for cultural self-expression and peace.

…since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed; …ignorance of each others ways and lives has been a common cause, throughout the history of mankind, of that suspicion and mistrust between the peoples of the world through which their differences have all too often broken into war.
The UNESCO Constitution
