INTRODUCTION – Why is this a Global Justice Issue?
Peace and stability are central to sustainable development. Peacekeeping is not only about the UN Peace Keeping it is about building a culture of peace and understanding in ourselves, our community, our school. This involves breaking down stereotypes that can lead to discrimination. It also involves influencing structures and systems that promote peace. Ireland is now a member of the UN Security Council, which gives us a great opportunity to help create a peaceful world.
