Peace is the cherished goal of mankind. It cannot be achieved by peaceful measures and cannot be achieved by a group of people or a particular country exclusive of others. It can be realized only through mutual understanding, international harmony and world brotherhood. Peace is one of the most cherished goals of the nations of the world. The peace movement began concentrating on stopping the threat of nuclear war, halting the arms race, and encouraging disarmament. Somewhat parallel to this, the issues of environmental protection and development found their place in peace education programs. Without peace, it is very difficult to achieve other goals like economic and social progress peace became all the more essential as the wars became very destructive and bloody due to development of dangerous weapons in the twentieth century.
