Members' Business: UN International Day of Peace 2018

September 18, 2018 17:00

 

That the Parliament recognises the UN International Day of Peace on 21 September 2018; highlights the work of the International Voluntary Service in promoting Peace Day 2018 in Scotland; acknowledges the UN understanding of peace to be structural, rather than just the absence of violence; notes that this understanding aligns with the UN Global Goals agenda, specifically Goal 16 of Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, and further notes this year’s International Peace Day theme of “The Right to Peace”, which serves to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.
