  1. 1. Peace & Justice Revision By Laura Frost & Amy Watson
  2. 2. Capital punishment Capital punishment is the penalty or sentence of death for committing a crime. The sentence of death has been imposed for such serious crimes as armed robbery, kidnapping, rape, and treason. People disagree about whether capital punishment is moral or if it is effective in discouraging crime. Critics also believe that there is a risk of executing mistakenly convicted people.
  3. 3. Pacifism There are several different sorts of pacifism, but they all include the idea that war and violence are unjustifiable, and that conflicts should be settled in a peaceful way. People are pacifists for one or some of these reasons: • religious faith • non-religious belief in the sanctity of life • practical belief that war is wasteful and ineffective Many believe that pacifism is more than opposition to war. They argue that it must include action to promote justice and human rights.
  4. 4. Amnesty International Working to protect human rights Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights for all. They believe human rights abuses anywhere are the concern of people everywhere. So, outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world, they work to improve people’s lives through campaigning and international solidarity.
  5. 5. Rules of Just War War is defined as two sovereign nations in conflict with one another. 1. For defensive purposes only. 2. Never for personal gain. ONLY as a last resort and ALL efforts to bring about peace are exhausted. 4. The innocent must be immune from harm. 5. War must be as quick and as swift as possible. 6. Attaining PEACE must be the primary goal.
