In peace education, negative peace is the absence of war, but not full peace.


Positive peace is a broader, more ambitious concept which aims “to bring justice to the different spheres of human relations. It challenges one to surface, confront, and resolve conflicts non-violently, and achieve a sense of harmony in individuals, nature, and society.” (Asociación pro Derechos Humanos-Seminario de Educación para la Paz (2000). Educar para la paz. Una propuesta posible, Madrid: Catarata).

The following are important components of positive peace:

• Dynamism: peace is not a fixed state but an ongoing process. It requires compromise, participation from everyone in determining and taking action, and a thoroughgoing use of non-violence. The combination of action and avoidance of violence is called non-violence, as translated from Gandhi’s use of the word ahimsa.

• Comprehensiveness: peacebuilding requires a total global awareness, which starts with the individual’s personal transformation and relationships to others and the environment, and ends with an understanding of the workings of the international system
