Dialogue & Alliance

New York, USA—The 2020 winter issue of Dialogue & Alliance, a journal of UPF, is now available. The theme of this issue is “World Summit 2020: Perspectives on Peace and Development.”

 

With this issue of Dialogue and Alliance, Volume 34 No. 2, we build on Volume 34 No. 1 by continuing to feature articles that were presented during World Summit 2020, organized by the Universal Peace Federation and held February 3-8, 2020. Whereas the previous issue had as its theme “Interfaith Perspectives on Peace” and included articles by religious, spiritual and interfaith leaders of the Interreligious Association for Peace and Development (IAPD), this issue addresses the theme of “Perspectives on Peace and Development” and draws on the insights of World Summit 2020 participants who joined the programs of the International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP) and the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP). Additionally, for the present issue we include addresses by the 2020 laureates of the Sunhak Peace Prize, presented every two years to distinguished individuals who have made very significant contributions to peace and development.

The International Summit Council for Peace and the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace are projects of the Universal Peace Federation. ISCP is a network of current and former heads of state and heads of government. The ISCP contributions to this volume were presented both during the Opening Plenary and during a series of sessions chaired by H.E. Goodluck Jonathan, former President of Nigeria and Chairman of ISCP Africa. The ISCP presenters come from many different nations and geographic regions and their collective wisdom and experience are substantial and impressive, as is reflected in their contributions to this volume.

A significant project of the ISCP is the International Association of First Ladies for Peace (IAFLP). IAFLP was also prominently featured during World Summit 2020, and a section of this volume is devoted to the presentations from the IAFLP sessions. The IAFLP participants included first ladies and prominent women leaders from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. The IAFLP benefits from the support of the Women’s Federation for World Peace, a partner of the Universal Peace Federation.

The second set of articles in this volume are drawn from the World Summit 2020 sessions of the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace, a global network of several thousand current and former members of congress, including many who serve or have served as presidents or speakers of their national parliaments or legislative assemblies. The IAPP, during this period of the Covid-19 pandemic has been working to develop an “early warning system” for pandemics, in an effort to avoid or mitigate the impact that pandemics have on the world’s peoples. The International Co-Chairs of the IAPP are Hon. Dan Burton of the USA and Hon. Jose De Venecia of the Philippines.

The Sunhak Peace Prize is a prestigious peace prize that has been presented since 2015 to persons who have made very substantial contributions to efforts to prevent climate change, to promote food security, to improve healthcare, especially in conflict zones, to provide education for women and girls, to help in bringing an end to extreme poverty, and to strengthen multilateral and global institutions. The recipients of the 2020 Sunhak Peace Prize are former United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, President Macky Sall of Senegal, and Bishop Munib Younan, former President of the World Lutheran Federation, each eminently worthy of such a significant award. Their acceptance speeches are included in this volume.

We hope you, our readers, will benefit from the articles included herein, and that Dialogue and Alliance can bring a sense of promise, insight and inspiration to you all, as we work together to achieve the hope of all ages, the unified world of peace.
