After a day of campaigning for the presidency, John F. Kennedy arrived at
the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on October 14, 1960, at 2:00 a.m.,
to get some sleep, not to propose the establishment of an international
volunteer organization. Members of the press had retired for the night,
believing that nothing interesting would happen.
But 10,000 students at the University were waiting to hear the presidential candidate speak, and it was there on the steps of the Michigan Union that a bold new experiment in public service was launched. The assembled students heard the future President issue a challenge: how many of them, he asked, would be willing to serve their country and the cause of peace by living and working in the developing world?
The reaction was both swift and enthusiastic, and over the last 40 years, more than 165,000 Americans have responded to this enduring challenge. And since then, the Peace Corps has demonstrated how the power of an idea can capture the imagination of an entire nation.

|http://csf.colorado.edu/peace/ The purpose of this site is to serve as a virtual guide to, and library of, peace studies and conflict resolution. In 1990, I started working on this idea and by early 1992, before the world wide web existed, I created this internet site and transformed an older listserv on peace into the Peace Studies Discussion Group (or "Peace List") as a service to those in higher education interested in the interdisciplinary field of peace studies. A year-and-a-half later, I created a discussion group and web site for service-learning. It was my hope that the peace studies site and discussion group would enhance communication, information-sharing and learning across large distances, and help to nurture the peace studies community. At the time they were created, and for quite some time afterwards, this site and the Peace List were the only internet/web site and national discussion group on peace studies and conflict resolution (at the time, there were less than 300 sites on the entire internet...and no web). I continue to manage the web site and discussion group on a volunteer basis in my capacity as a founding editor, list owner and web site developer of Communications for a Sustainable Future (CSF), which is hosted by the University of Colorado at Boulder.|

Journalists, educators, and activists keep up to date on the important work of peacemaking by reading this popular and respected magazine. Four times a year we publish articles, news stories, book and film reviews, letters, and a calendar of events. We discuss disarmament; conflict resolution; nonviolent sanctions; peace institutions (e.g. the United Nations and the World Court); conflicts and crises around the world; profiles of activists and researchers; and controversies about development, population, and environmental protection. Our illustrated 32-page magazine includes an eight-page section produced in collaboration with Science for Peace. Our stories are technically accurate, yet intelligible to any reader with a general education and some interest in international affairs and global security.
Peace Magazine is published by Canadian Disarmament Information Service (CANDIS) -- a nonprofit organization. We rely heavily on volunteers, including our associate editors who select and commission articles for each issue.
