Genuine peace involves more than negative peace, i.e., merely the absence of violence. It also involves positive peace, i.e., the presence of conditions that promote and sustain meaningful and fulfilled lives. Fundamental to the achievement of positive peace is justice, not only in the legal sense, but also in the economic sense, as lack of adequate health, housing, and nutrition obstruct the attainment of fulfilled lives, and hence of both personal and interpersonal peace.
