IFLAC PAVE PEACE: International Forum For The Culture of Peace

Goals
PLATFORM

We believe that culture and literature can promote peace, freedom, and the enrichment of the quality of life. At the beginning of the twenty first century, we shall endeavor to pave the way towards the fulfillment of our main ideal "one world and one humanity, all living in peace". Our goal is to help build a Middle East and a world beyond war in the 21st century, by means of communication, literature, culture and art. This endeavor is in harmony with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights embodied in the Charter of the United Nations. We strive for freedom of speech and expression, and for freedom from hostile and oppressive violence, whether it is war, or gender, physical, mental or moral oppression. We believe in the right of people everywhere to live in peace, and in their rights to pursue their various cultures, as well as human endeavors, and to obtain equal civil justice.

ACTIVITY

Toward these ends, we organized the founding of the
"International Congress on Conflict Resolution Through Culture and Literature," in Shavei Zion, Galilee, in June 1999. The Second Iflac Pave Peace Conference, was in Sydney in 2001, the third Iflac Conference was held in London in 2002, and the fourth was held in Bursa, Turkey, in October 2003. The fifth IFLAC Conference will take place in Los Angeles - Glendale (California)-August 3-6, 2005 (just before the WCP: World Congress of Poets, in the same location). "IFLAC", under its former name: "The Friends of Literature Association", was founded in 1985 in Haifa Israel. There are ten branches in Jewish, Arab and Druze sectors in Israel, harmoniously working together.
We hold literary and cultural meetings including: Lectures, Poetry Reading, Story-Telling, New Books celebrations, Interviews, Cultural Festivals, Symposiums, and Conferences. In 1996, the TENT OF PEACE was set up in the Druze village of Ussfiya, in which inter-cultural meetings and happenings are held. From year 2000, International Iflac elected Haifa, as its world center.
