The King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Programme for a Culture of Peace and Dialogue arose from the institutional framework of UNESCO’s Programme for a Culture of peace and non-violence. More than a concept, the Culture of Peace is a commitment to make peace a tangible reality for all. It denotes “a set of values, attitudes, traditions and modes of behaviour and ways of life based on respect for life, ending of violence and […] adherence to the principles of freedom, justice, democracy, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation, pluralism, cultural diversity, dialogue and understanding at all levels of society and among nations” (Article 1, Declaration and Programme of Action of a Culture of Peace, UNESCO, 1999). UNESCO continue its work to nurture a Culture of Peace, with development considerations, by joining forces with committed stakeholders in education, the sciences, culture, and communication and information.
