Personalities of the world of art and culture promote a Declaration on
the Right to Peace before the General Assembly of the United Nations
Paz sin Fronteras (PSF) is a movement inspired in the humanitarian work
of its two top leaders, Miguel Bosé and Juanes; its purpose is to
promote the construction of peace in the world through art, culture and
the support of renowned musicians.
Today 19 December 2016, the Declaration has been ratified by the Plenary
of the General Assembly. Previously, on 22 October, PSF began the
campaign called #RightToPeaceNow by which well-known personalities urged
Member States of the Third Committee of the General Assembly to adopt a
Declaration on the Right to Peace.
Thanks to its social mobilization and the leading role played by a large
NGO group, on 18 November 2016, the Third Committee General of the
Assembly of the United Nations has adopted a Declaration on the Right to
Peace by majority of its Member States.
During this campaign, several personalities of the world of culture and
art have raised their voices to demand a Declaration on the Right to
Peace through their media and social networks. They have expressed their
support so that the process was definitively closed in New York with the
adoption of a Declaration on the Right to Peace, such as occurred in
After almost twenty years, the Declaration on the right to Peace has
definitely been adopted. This longstanding humankind’s aspiration has
finally realized within the framework of the General Assembly after its
first serious attempt carried out by UNESCO in 1997.
The Declaration will pass to the UN history for being the first peace
Declaration adopted by the General Assembly in this new Millennium,
after the adoption of the Declaration and Programme of Action on Culture
of Peace in 1999 by the same body.
PSF wants to thank all people, governments and institutions for having
successfully ended this joint adventure in New York, which formally
began at the HRC in Geneva in 2006. A long period of almost ten years of
intensive work is closed forever.
This Declaration is the clear result of the important role played by
some sectors of civil society and Universities for years, which have
shown that genuine dialogue among all stakeholders and regional groups
are the foundation of peace and understanding in the world.
