Thirty-four outstanding scholars write about the etymological meaning and the religious, legal and political connotations of the concept of 'peace'. They provide firm evidence to show how adopting a multi-faceted approach to 'peace' could ultimately contribute to the search for a more authentic understanding of 'peace' across the world stage.
