Canadian Department of Peace Initiative Presents: “Arctic Leadership: Collaborative Model Needed to Face Security Issues in the North”
The Canadian Department of Peace Initiative (CDPI) is a non-partisan civil society movement that has been advocating for the creation of a Department of Peace since 2004. The initiative envisions this department to encompass five pillars: human rights and security, education that promotes a culture of peace, conflict prevention, nuclear disarmament and arms control, and a Civilian Peace Service.
CDPI’s “Arctic Leadership: Collaborative Model Needed to Face Security Issues in the North” was recently presented at the Peace and Justice Studies Association Conference on October 2nd, 2010. This report argues the importance of establishing a Department of Peace in order to deal with Arctic security questions through a new lense; that of collaborative leadership rather than militaristic threats.
