Abstract:

Roman Catholics with a 1960s worldview used “justice and Peace” as a powerful single expression, almost as a hyphenated word. The end of the cold war and a new consciousness of intrastate armed conflict worldwide intensified the focus on peace-building within the Catholic Church's missionary community. In this new orientation, a wide “inner-outer” understanding of peace is proposed. The peace-building effort is shown to be too important to leave to politicians and diplomats. It must be the work of “multi-tracks” of society. Exploratory peace-building research suggests both a critique of long-established forms of religious peace-building and new opportunities.
