Your generosity enables the continuation of the great tradition of the Sydney Peace Foundation
For fifteen years, the Sydney Peace Foundation has encouraged Australians to think about alternatives to violence through the award of the Sydney Peace Prize.
Beyond its award of the Sydney Peace Prize, the Foundation is also engaged in other work which develops corporate sector, community and international understanding of the value of peace with justice.
The Foundation provides scholarships for students from third world countries to undertake graduate studies at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney. One such student is Abha Shrestha, who in 2004 completed her MA dissertation on “The Impact of Internal Armed Conflict on Nepalese Women”. Abha works at the national Human Rights Commission of Nepal and is especially interested in issues of gender and peacebuilding. Abha hopes that after returning to Nepal, which has been suffering from armed conflict for many years, she can contribute to the establishment of peace in her country.
The Foundation’s latest project, the Schools Peace Initiative, engages young Australians to think about the practise of non-violence and the value of peace with justice. The Foundation also provides support to the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, which conducts research and programs such as:The West Papua Project, which seeks to promote peaceful dialogue between the people of West Papua and Indonesia as a viable alternative to the current and escalating conflict in this area. The Effects of Racism on Lebanese Youth in Australia – Pathways to Just Solutions, a two year research program which analyses racism directed at Lebanese youth in Australia and identifies means to resolve specific consequences of such racism.
The Sydney Peace Foundation relies on donations and corporate funding to continue its work. We need more financial resources to promote ways of thinking and acting which produce non-violent solutions to problems.
You can help us make a difference. We would be grateful for your support.
