Peace can most simply be described as the absence of war, however, nowadays peace researchers and
experts most frequently apply the concept of “positive peace” which is more than just an absence of war.
Positive peace aims at accomplishing freedoms, rights and equality as a means of guaranteeing sustainable
peace without racism, exploitation and other forms of a barrier to equal opportunities. Positive peace is a
constant process and requires active peaceful measures.
