The word peace conjures myriad images. For some, peace is achieved in a world free of violent conflict from ethnic, cultural, religious, or political differences. For others, the promotion of democracy, justice, and human rights are additional and equally important facets of peace. Thus, although peace connotes stability and solidarity, the definitions of peace are potentially contentious and unacceptable to different societies. Perceptions of Peace in Washington, DCis a unique collection of articles that explore the notion of peace through the eyes of Washington, DC residents.
