Foundation of the New Civilization

This document is the result of several years work of Nobel Peace Laureates and Organizations. It was approved at the 7th World Summit as the “First Draft of the Charter for a World without violence”. The final version of the Charter was approved by Nobel Peace Laureates and Organizations at the 8th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
