International Day of Peace

peace-day.jpgThe International Day of Peace was first established by a UN General Assembly resolution (A/Res/36/67 of 30 November 1981) and, at that time, intended to be “devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples” (ibid. para. 2). It was also to coincide with the opening session of the UN General Assembly every September. The exact date of this Day of Peace was later, through UNGA Res 55/282 of 28 September 2001, fixed to be September 21st every year. This particular day shall function “as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day.”
