The Netherlands

In the Netherlands, peace organisation PAX works on peace and security. We involve citizens in our native land in our work in areas in conflict by setting up a series of campaigns in the Netherlands, the high point being the annual peace week. In addition, we endeavour to exercise influence on political policy.

Our work is not restricted to areas in conflict. The efforts of Dutch citizens are also needed to ensure that every person can live in safety. That is why we set up our Dutch campaigns like the recent Adopt a Revolution and Greetings from Syria campaigns. Our newest campaign is called Powered by Peace and focuses on the role of resources in conflicts.

The crowning touch is the annual peace week. Since 2011 we have set up a Ministry of Peace during this week and we encourage Dutch citizens like you to set up an Embassy of Peace.
