SOME COMMENDATIONS OF TED DUNN’S REGIONAL PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES

 .

A serious and thoughtful attempt to deal with what is perhaps the most urgent problem facing mankind Lord Peter Archer, QC

The proposal is an idea which deserves the most serious consideration. H.Dale Anderson, Deputy High Commissioner for Jamaica

I very much support this initiative – Stuart Holland MP, when Shadow Minister for Development

World Peace through regional peace and development programmes should, for example, wipe out the apartheid system in South Africa – Ahaja Shehu Awak; Nigerian High Commissioner

You certainly have my support – George Foulkes, Shadow Minister for the UN

I fully support the concepts of Regional Peace and Development Programmes. Roland Dale, Northern Friends Peace Board

I am a keen proponent of Regional Development. The creation of an International Criminal Tribunal  (is) . . . the lynchpin of the future development of international law. Peter Benenson, founder of Amnesty International

The concept has very practical possibilities for the Southern Philippines in particular, and the South East Asian region in general. Nagasura T. Madale, Director of the Southern Philippines Centre for Peace Studies

I firmly believe the proposal represents a very wise and potentially creative way in which the world could deal with its most pressing needs  –  John Sarum, Bishop of Salisbury

A thoughtful and important document which should be widely discussed. John Ferguson, Chairman of the United Nations Association, past President of the Selly Oak Colleges

I think regionalization of the world’s problems is the only feasible way. Johan Galtung, Peace Researcher, founder of the International Peace research Institute, Oslo

I commend what you are doing . . . governments can often co-operate more effectively on a regional basis than a global basis because of shared economic, cultural and political interests. Cecil Evans, Assistant General Secretary of Quaker Peace and Service

We here will do what we can to further encourage your ideas in Commonwealth capitals whenever opportunities arise – Christopher Laidlaw, then Assistant Director of the Commonwealth  Office 

It is clear that in the fifth decade of the United Nations era there is need for new thinking about the way forward in developing world order. Ted Dunn has added to his efforts in furthering public education on world peace a new work that suggests a practical formula for establishing peace through a step by step approach. He focuses on the regional dimension in a novel way – a proposal for official development programmes which are based on and integrate social, economic and political justice. The formula requires a meaningful relationship between rich and poor countries – one which would be advantageous for their common development and thus necessarily contribute to world peace. It is an imaginative and practically-oriented work, grounded in a thorough knowledge of the historical record. It is to be heartily recommended – Shridath Ramphal, when Secretary General, Commonwealth Secretariat
