To build cultures of peace, one must often lay aside the "expert" label and become a student in the world who is willing to learn from other cultures in pursuit of peace. To set up an intercultural dialogue on this topic, the Committee for the Psychological Study of Peace, in conjunction with the University for Peace and the Institute for Psychological Research of the University of Costa Rica, sponsored the 6th International Symposium on the Contribution of Psychology to Peace. This special issue extends the dialogue which began at the Symposium. Aiming to help define the role and contributio

This volume, as part of the South Asian Peace Studies series, looks at peace as a process. It makes a three-fold inquiry into the political dimensions of peace - the process of peace, the contentious issues involved in the peace process, and the ideologies that are in conflict in this process. The essays collectively show that the sustainability of peace depends crucially on a foundation of rights, justice and democracy.

Representing a synthesis of the author’s decades of multidisciplinary work in meditation, psychiatry, psychotherapy, and spirituality, Creating Peace by Being Peace guides readers in creating peace on seven levels of engagement, from the body to the ecology to God.
