The Tabula Rasa Institute understands that it
is not alone in its desire for a world without violent conflict, one in which
we can resolve those conflicts that do arise efficiently and for the benefit of
all. Many other individuals and groups are working around the world for these
same goals. It is because of this that TRI is working to create the PeaceWorker
Database and Directory.
One of the obstacles facing thinkers and
activists actively striving for peace is that they are often working without
the input, suggestions, and collaboration of others. If we were able to create
a network of PeaceWorkers, communicating around the world, we can only expect
to improve the results of our individual efforts.
Fortunately, the structure for a global
network of academics, professionals, and activists already exists: the
Internet. What is needed is a resource with which we can locate and communicate
with each other most efficiently and effectively.
The PeaceWorker Database and Directory Project
will create two interrelated, yet independent, searchable resources for
PeaceWorkers everywhere. The first will be the PeaceWorker Directory, a listing
of organizations and useful web resources that will be the most comprehensive
of its kind available.
The listings in the Directory will be the
starting point for the PeaceWorker Database, a searchable listing of people who
are working for peace. These listings will include valuable contact information
as well as interests, affiliations, and activities. Unlike other databases in
the field, this will not only be a listing of "experts" in particular
subfields, it will include academics, governmental and nongovernmental
employees, students, teachers, activists, and anyone with a desire to be
included and an desire for peace.
