A PARTNERSHIP FOR PEACE
 
Rotary has partnered with the Institute for Economics and Peace, an independent
think tank and leader in the study of peace and its economic benefits, to address the
causes of conflict and create conditions that foster peace.
The institute has identified eight factors that work together to build Positive Peace.
These Pillars of Positive Peace largely align with Rotary’s six areas of focus.

 
Rotary and the Institute for Economics and Peace have developed  the following to help clubs and districts build and sustain peace in their communities:
  • The Rotary Positive Peace Academy. A free online course that offers strategies and tools for applying the Positive Peace framework and mobilizing communities to address the underlying causes of conflict. Register today at rotarypositivepeace.org.
