A Letter From
“The world will live in peace, only when the individuals composing it make
up their minds to do so.”
Since Wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed. Conflicts are usually caused by Ideological Extremism, Religious Fundamentalism, Misguided Nationalism, Economic Injustice and Inequality. Violation of Human Rights, Suppression of Freedoms, Militarism of Powered Politics, Population Explosion, Facial and Ethnic Discrimination, Egoism and Uncontrolled Human Instincts also lead to conflicts.
Peace is a concept of harmonious well being and freedom from hostile aggression. Throughout history, most of the leaders have used peace talks to establish a certain type of restraint that has resulted in establishment of regional peace or economic growth through various forms of agreements or peace treaties. The world we live in today needs to de-escalate rhetorical and physical conflicts, greater economic interactivity and consequently substantial prosperity.
Like Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “It isn’t enough to talk about peace, one must believe in it. And if it isn’t enough to believe in it, one must work at it.”
The United Nation was formed in 1945 under one Central Mission “The Maintenance of International Peace and security.” Today the United Nations in the form of MUNs is grooming several future leaders who will in coming time ensure that international peace and security is maintained.
The Secretariat welcomes you to the first edition of GDMUN. Let’s all try to “Broker Peace in Midst of Chaos.”
