Promoting Just Peace

Christians and churches are entrusted with the ministry of peace and reconciliation. The WCC response to violence and violent conflict today is based on decades of ecumenical deliberation, understanding, practice and advocacy. The project is participatory and action-oriented and assists churches and related groups to make progress toward greater unity for peace.
