For those interested in learning more about what’s happening after the Vatican Nonviolence and Just Peace Conference that recently took place in Rome — and that Pace e Bene co-sponsored — you can visit the conference’s website. You’ll find the new Nonviolence and Just Peace website here.

Also, the United States Institute of Peace’s Maria J. Stephan, co-author of Why Civil Resistance Works (PDF) and who participated in the Vatican Nonviolence conference, has written a powerful article in Foreign Affairs about the potential impact of the conference, which you can see here!  For those unable to access the Foreign Affairs article, you can read the PDF here.
