The Canadian Culture of Peace Program’s article “Drafting a Protocol To Guide Our Conversions and Relationships” is a very interesting read and includes a reference list worth checking out.
It seems to me that a culture of peace could inform us on how to approach change. A culture of peace could inform our everyday work - are we not all, in some way, creating, supporting, empowering, or managing change with people or systems? Is business and indeed life not a series of changes?
What could be added, from my perspective, is a focus on bringing a culture of peace to ourselves first - practicing honesty, respect and understanding with our own thinking. I find this practice closes the gap between myself and others and so contributes to a culture of peace. I hear the truth in Byron Katie’s quote, “The first act of war is an act of defense.” Peace starts with my own thoughts.
