A Forum for Peace

For every year since 1983 the Buddhist leader and thinker, Daisaku Ikeda, President of the SGI has issued a peace proposal that presents solutions to a variety of global problems. While the proposals themselves are both wide-ranging and specific (covering topics as diverse as counter-terrorism relations; the prohibition of child soldiers; denuclearization of the Arctic; and strategies to prevent global warming), the common denominator at their centre is the role and effectiveness of the United Nations in addressing structural challenges and inequality.

This substantial volume brings together, for the first time in one place, excerpts from the most topical and important of SGI President Ikeda’s peace proposals.
