This is a publication by the HRDO Center that sheds light on the culture of peace, the mechanisms for achieving it, and the repercussions of its disappearance from the societal and personal behavior in Egypt. How can policies and legislation ensure the promotion of notions of peace that are closely linked to ensuring human rights. This report monitors several basic concepts and how they are addressed by international and national legislation and the feasibility of adopting a culture of peace, tolerance and non-violence as an initial step to raise awareness of the need to renounce violence, discrimination and hatred as a basic entry point for a better, safer and more stable society.
