The Value of Peace: Subjective Importance and Perceived Self-Efficacy in Promoting Pacific Cohabitation
Abstract:We compared the subjective importance of the value of peace and the perceived self-efficacy in promoting pacific cohabitation among members of a Buddhist community named Soka Gakkai. Members of this group assume that peace is a fundamental condition for living together. The role of the affiliation to the group and the members' seniority have been taken into account. Results highlighted that affiliation to a group which assumes peace as its main concern enhances both the importance of the value of peace and the perceived self-efficacy in promoting pacific cohabitation. Moreover, modifications to self-efficacy increase with members' seniority.
