Democracy and Peacebuilding

"Violence resulting from all forms of conflicts, negatively affects individuals and societies. Armed conflicts in several countries in the world, especially in the Middle East, leads to the loss of many lives, displacing them, violating the rule of law, and nullifying their right to live in security, freedom, and dignity. These destructive effects necessitate work on intensive programs that establish real and sustainable peace for all people".
