Peacebuilding

What is “peace” in Sri Lanka? the definition of peace is quite broad, and it is difficult to describe peace in a word. However, for the MLL’s activity, peace can be defined as a situation where all people can realize their basic goals in their lives.

What is “peace” in Sri Lanka? the definition of peace is quite broad, and it is difficult to describe peace in a word. However, for the MLL’s activity, peace can be defined as a situation where all people can realize their basic goals in their lives. To create such a peaceful society, we set up five targets for our activity: conflict, poverty, disaster, health, and education.

To realize our basic goals, “ability,” “motivation,” and “opportunity” are required. Although the two components of “ability” and “motivation” are individual factors, “opportunity” is an environmental factor and is easy to be deprived by various social factors. Those social factors are mainly included in the five targets of the MLL. We would not achieve any basic goal in our lives, rather our lives would be in danger, if we were suffered from armed conflict, poverty, natural disaster, health condition, or less education chance. Therefore, we, with these five targets, act for Sri Lankan sustainable peace by collaborating with many varieties of actors, such as international organizations, government, corporations, and civil society.
