"LEADERS WITHOUT BORDERS"
FOR A PHILOSOPHY OF ACTIVE NON-VIOLENCE
The Doctorate in Peace Administration program aims to promote the UN's core values of peace based on active non-violence and universal human rights.
Since the end of the Cold War, the nature and physiognomy of conflicts have undergone profound changes. Conflict situations have become more complex, they are increasingly the result of internal tensions within nations and the reasons for violence are multiple (economic, social, religious, ethnic, etc.). In this context, traditional diplomacy, based on relations between nations, aspires to be assisted by organizations which know the specific nature of conflicts and which are able to go in depth in understanding local situations.
To facilitate the role of the forces of the peacekeeping operations deployed by the United Nations, the international community also needs leaders who combine a strong culture of peace and involvement in theaters of operations, as has been possible. to make a predecessor in the care of suffering populations around the world.
The mission of leaders without borders is to train messengers, builders and negotiators of peace. These missions could be structured around three dimensions:
Apprehension and understanding of local problems and obstacles related to peacekeeping,
Actions in the field as a pressure group with strong media coverage,
Education of new generations on issues of peace.
As part of their missions, future leaders without borders will supervise the “UNCR's peace corps of volunteers”.
