The Georgetown University Program on Justice and Peace (PJP) "is an interdisciplinary unit dedicated to teaching and research in the emerging area of Peace Studies...

"Within the Christian tradition we find these two issues deeply entwined. From the Catholic Just War debate to the Quaker peace communities, issues of justice and peace are integral to the Christian world view. Our Program is especially well suited for research and teaching about the many ways in which different social and religious arrangements conceptualize and practice peace. We take inspiration from the teachings of Gandhi and Ambedkar, Martin Luther King and Frantz Fanon, Rigoberta Menchu and Emma Goldman. In its teaching, research and service at Georgetown, the Program is dedicated to providing ecumenical, international perspectives on peace, and to developing practical solutions to problems of social inequality and injustice at all levels of society. The attainment of justice and peace forms a conceptual, moral, and practical unity that must be pursued across the diversity of human experience." [1]

"Peace Studies in its various incarnations has shown enormous growth in the last 20 years. The first undergraduate program in Peace Studies was formed 50 years ago at Manchester College. There are now over 500 colleges around the world with programs, including at least 6 graduate programs. (See the link to other programs from our homepage). The field is represented by two major professional organizations, the Peace Studies Association (PSA) and the Consortium on Peace Research, Education, and Development (COPRED)." [2]
