Towards a just and ecologically sustainable peace
Tuesday, 27 October, 6:00 pm–7:30 pm AEDT
Join us for the release of this important book, to be launched by Dr Vandana Shiva and Prof Richard Falk.
Towards a Just and Ecologically Sustainable Peace: Navigating the Great Transition develops a holistic approach to countering violence that integrates notions of peace, justice and care of the Earth. It identifies the principles that can guide a shift from Just War to Just Peace, theoretically and in practice. It sets out the conditions required for a Just and Ecologically Sustainable Peace by bringing together contributions by Indigenous scholars, international relations scholars, peace studies and nonviolence specialists, and ecological feminists.
