U.N. Peacemaking Machinery

August 22, 1980

The 21st Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 19-23 August, 1980 in Hamden, Connecticut:

To all Sections:

Realizing that WILPF’s primary objective of “total and universal disarmament” has not been achieved in 65 years of campaigning;

Believing that other means of solving international disputes have to be accepted by the people of the world;

Be it resolved that WILPF pursue the implementation of Article 33 of the United Nations Charter with a view of preparing a well devised and documented submission to the United Nations outlining proposals for improving the peaceful settlement machinery of the United Nations, strengthening the International Court of Justice, establishing a permanent mediation board served by a reliable fact-finding commission, and developing arbitration machinery that would implement the Charter’s demand that peaceful settlement should be sought “first of all’ by these very procedures, as a peaceful world cannot be created by violence
