The work of Pax Christi International is based on the gospel and inspired by faith. Pax Christi International believes that peace is possible and that vicious cycles of violence and injustice can be broken. Our vision is of a world where people can live in peace, free from the fear of violence in all its forms.
As a faith based network, Pax Christi International seeks to transform a world shaken by violence, terrorism, deepening inequalities, and global insecurity. Pax Christi International works to create a culture of peace and believes that religion should be an unequivocal force for peace and social justice. Pax Christi International is committed to non-violence, demilitarization and disarmament, human security, human rights, and the rule of law as the basis for peaceful societies. As a movement and a global network, Pax Christi International brings together people from many different backgrounds and cultures as they shape and act upon their shared vision of peace, reconciliation, and justice for all.
In all of its work, Pax Christi International explores innovative approaches to peace building, identifying beforehand the ‘signs of the times’ through a process of collaborative learning with all those associated with its work.
