Peace is a very general concept of social harmony and societal friendliness in the absence of war and conflict. From a social point of view, peace is used to describe a period of time when people are allowed to live their lives without interference from major conflicts, such as war. Peace is an important factor that influences human actions and reactions. In fact, it has been scientifically studied and found that individuals who seek for peace are happier than those who are living in a constant state of war.
Peace is also a significant factor in the formation of world peace, because peace encourages the achievement of political and economic equality between countries. Peace promotes human rights and promotes trust among nations. Peace encourages the prevention of acts of war and serious violations of human rights, such as torture, killing, forced displacement, forced labor, and other outrages. In addition, peace can contribute to the achievement of greater global health status and quality of life by averting diseases that could lead to unfortunate consequences in the future.
Peace can be achieved through dialogue and negotiation; through respect for human rights; through the promotion of better economic conditions and growth; through the alleviation of basic needs; and through better management of political and security situations. For these reasons, different types of international organizations have been formed to work on peace, including the United Nations and the Red Cross, the World Health Organization, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Intergovernmental Research Program on International Terrorism. The United Nations and the Red Cross accept the responsibility for the prevention of acts of terrorism and civil wars by resolving conflicts through peaceful means.
