- Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA)
The Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2001 as a result of a merger of the Consortium on Peace research, Education and Development (COPRED) and the Peace Studies Association (PSA). Both organizations provided leadership in the broadly defined field of peace, conflict and justice studies.
We are dedicated to bringing together academics, K-12 teachers and grassroots activists to explore alternatives to violence and share visions and strategies for peacebuilding, social justice, and social change.
PJSA also serves as a professional association for scholars in the field of peace and conflict resolution studies.
PJSA will be holding a Conference in October: “Who Speaks for the Common Good?”
It will be held at Manhattan College, in the Bronx, NY, from October 5-8, 2006.

- World Peace
The fact is that world peace is not just some desirable concept, wished for by the masses but unattainable in reality; world peace is the normal standard of how things should be on an everyday basis, and the way to achieve it is not so very far out of reach.
Do we imagine that the world is going to continue forever in an endless round of conflicts and disputes resulting in loss of life and bloodshed, or shouldn't we suppose that at some stage in human development everybody is going to become wiser and change things so that these events never happen again? Of course the answer is that sooner or later, world peace is going to be the normal state of affairs in international concerns.
If it is going to happen sooner or later anyway, what is wrong with it happening sooner rather than later? World peace doesn't have to be something our descendants will enjoy at some obscure point in the distant future; world peace can happen here and now, and in our lifetimes. The purpose of this website is to show exactly how world peace can be achieved, and what everyone can do to help achieve it.
