Peace for society is always linked peace and it
requires some moralities. It demands tolerance, respect for every human being, and
freedom of expression without hate speech, ethics and etiquette. Peace of the society
is always threatened by religious terrorism, extremism, property conflicts, electronic
& social media, harassment, corruption & injustice and hate speech.
We have to be a social worker and volunteer in every healthy and positive activity which will promise peace in our society and world.
Peace, justice and strong institutions are directly linked with each other and can never be achieved if we will not address all of them simultaneously. Peace comes through justice and justice prevails when institutions are strong and free from political influence. Strong institutions will only guarantee us peace in the world.
There are a number of international institutions and NGOs working for peace, justice, human rights and international law. United Nations itself is biggest platform to raise voices and discuss matters of international interest. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) also charged with great power for the maintenance of international peace and security. Similarly there are many other organizations working for international peace, justice and security like International Court of Justice, United Nations Office of the Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide, Interpol etc. and Non-Governmental Organizations like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and International Center for Transitional Justice etc. and the list goes on.
Peace based approaches should be adopted when making any policies and decisions of international interests. Wars and forced occupation are never solution to resolve any conflict among countries.

A recent case of Rohingya Muslims is an example of state oppression and violence against minority ethnic group (the world's most persecuted minority) and UN couldn’t do enough for it.
State Chancellor Aung San Suu
Kyi, who is the de facto leader of Myanmar, has refused to really discuss the
plight of the Rohingya. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has been criticized for her failure to condemn
indiscriminate force used by troops, as well as to stand up for the rights of
the more than one million Rohingya in Myanmar.
Oxford University college also takes down portrait of Aung San Suu Kyi from display over Rohingya crisis.

National institutions are
back bone for peace and justice in any society and they need to be strong and
free from political pressure. Judiciary
and police are responsible for tackling crime and security in the society.
Parliament should work in the best interest of citizens when policy making. Every
citizen should have the right to enjoy equally all human rights, justice and
resources of the country. It should not be linked with ethnicity, religion or
Politicians, public office holders and institutions should be accountable & inclusive and corruption & bribery culture should be eliminated. They have the direct effect on economy, tax collection and budget. The rule of law should prevail.
Institutions in most of the developing and all poor countries are weak and under political pressure. Justice is not freely and easily available due to which peace is threatened and violence is widespread in these countries and government’s policies only benefit aristocrats and bureaucrats; the most relevant to their interests.
