It may sound oxymoronic, but peace studies majors — or at least the ones who don’t take their education for granted — wage war daily.
Are we living through the least violent moment in human history? Has there ever been an age, during the past 10,000 years, with fewer wars or mass killings or chances of being murdered?
Carrotmob is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California. [ 1 ] It uses buycotts (a form of consumer activism where a community buys a lot of goods from one company in a small time period) to reward a business's commitment to making socially responsible changes to the business. Carrotmob also refers to a global movement [ 2 ] of community organizers who use the Carrotmob tactic of consumer activism as a way to help change businesses in their communities. [ 3 ] In a Carrotmob buycott, businesses compete to be the most socially responsible business, and then a network of consumers spends money to support the winner. [ edit ] History
An anti-boycott or buycott is the excess buying of a particular brand or product in an attempt to counter a boycott of the same brand or product.

Now this is what a real naked protest looks like: no clothes.
PETA has been leading the “naked” protesting” trend in a series of nonviolent (and eye-pleasing) protests involving hot women and men getting naked to draw public attention to pressing issues of animal cruelty—bull fighting, live export, and factory farming. Their most recent campaign targets the poultry giant KFC, which retails an estimated 736 million chickens annually (NYT).
Dear Colleagues As the conflict resolution and peacebuilding field has grown an increasing number of organizations and associations have been formed to help share information, exchange best practice, work on conflict advocacy, etc. Some organizations are more practitioner focused and concentrate more on organizations, while others are more for individuals and possibly more academic and research focused (and a number combine both approaches). What I would like to start is a listing of some of the key network organizations in the field around the world and then ask you to help add to the list. I do not want to list individual organizations or institutions, only those that provide a networking, coordination or information sharing function. Some of these networks may only be open to select members, but most are open (although some charge a membership fee).
If you haven’t noticed, here at the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, we are committed to providing a platform where interested people can connect with each other, share information, and find useful tools for their goals.
