One approach of HWPL’s initiatives to world peace is to establish an enforceable law that can be adopted by every state. To pursue this goal, the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was proclaimed on 14 March, 2016 by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee made up of leading experts, inspired by Chairman Lee’s advocacy and efforts of building cooperation.

The DPCW has been drafted with the intention of promoting the respect of fundamental human rights and international law, and of further involving States in the active protection of those rights. The Declaration, which advocates for peace by specifying provisions on the cessation of war, inspires the global community to develop a legally binding document that can be implemented at an international level. This is triggered by the collective voice of individuals for peace, since the citizens of the world are actively participating in the Legislate Peace Campaign to support peace by adding their signatures to the campaign.
