KIM DAE JUNG PEACE FORUM

Topic/Agenda

Reconciliation, healing, life, and solidarity are to be presented as the basic principles of philosophy and values that provide alternatives to Kim Dae-Jung's peace ideology upon the multi-layered and complex problems that threaten the world and human peace today.


Reconciliation

The perception that a particular group's values are superior or correct makes it difficult to establish international peace. Only reconciliation between opposing powers can bring peace.


Healing

Reconciliation is possible when the wounds caused by conflict are healed, rather than simply forgetting or covering up past conflicts. The simple closure of conflict leads to a vicious cycle of retaliation and violence, not peace. By healing the wounds of the past, peace in the present and in the future can be made possible.


Life

At the root of the problems that threaten a peaceful life, such as wars between nations, social conflicts, and environmental destruction, lies the idea of recognizing humans and life as means. We can overcome today's great crisis when we acknowledge the dignity of each individual and extend it to all life on Earth.


Solidarity

Peace is impossible without solidarity. In particular, in the face of the current human history and civilization crisis, humankind can't advance into a new era without solidarity in distance.
