In his keynote address at the Tanner Human Rights Center conference, Jean-Marc Coicaud, Professor of Law and Global Affairs at Turgers University, said that War within is prone to go hand in hand with war with other…When one is at war with himself or herself, when one does not like or accept who he or she is, chances are that one will be at war with others, that his or her relationships with others with be colored by tensions and conflicts. How does conflict within one’s self increase the likelihood of violence in the world? How can we cultivate values, emotions, and habits of peace every day in our daily lives as citizens in order to reduce the level of violent conflict in the world?
