There are proven methodologies for the non-violent resolution of conflict, as well as proactive domestic and foreign actions which can reduce the likelihood of violent conflict;

The Government of Canada has the opportunity to increase its resources and structures to support peacekeeping, peacebuilding and peace diplomacy.
