The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) drafted by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee was proclaimed on March 14, 2016 in the form of a Preamble, 10 articles and 38 clauses.
The ten articles of the DPCW are introduced in sequence under the following three overarching values:
- Conflict prevention
- Conflict mediation
- Securing sustainable peace
The DPCW has been drafted by the Chairman of HWPL and prominent international law experts from 15 different countries. Under the Legislate Peace Campaign, citizens develop cooperative relationships with their respective communities, schools, and NGOs to build a global civil network of support and represent the positive demand for peace.
