Dear Dr Schlichtmann,

Apologies for the delay in responding to your suggestions. We were interested to read about your proposals for UN reform in order to mark the 100th anniversary of the Second Hague Peace Conference. However, as an intergovermental
organization, UNESCO has to respect the sovereignty of its member states. In this respect, it would be inappropriate to comment upon the constitution of one particular state. Nonetheless, it is of course important to highlight the intellectual and political history of moves towards a system of collective security. In this respect, your endeavours certainly mark a contribution to international discussions on the prevention of wars.

In your letter, you referred to "Monuments for a Culture of Peace" and suggested that article 9 of the Japanese constitution be considered as one. However, there is no official UNESCO title/award of "Monuments for a Culture
of Peace". An initiative to identify elements of local heritage as "Monuments for a Culture of Peace" existed at the start of the International Decade for a Culture of Peace. However, this undertaking was eventually launched by the NGO Liaison Committee (i.e. the committee of non-govermental organizations maintaining official relations with UNESCO), and not by the Organization itself. There are currently no plans to turn this initiative into any kind of official award.

We are sorry that we could not supply you with a more positive feedback. As regards registering your organisation at our Culture of Peace website, we would require a bit more information (namely current activities, membership structure
etc.). We could then provide you with advice regarding the overall procedures. Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any further questions with regard to the International Decade.

Yours sincerely,
Aurore Salinas

Movement for UN Reform 2007
Centenary of the Second Hague Peace Conference
"To serve the Peace of the World "

Dear Madam, Sir,

UNFOR 2007, the MOVEMENT FOR THE REFORM OF THE UNITED NATIONS 2007, was founded last year to promote understanding and public awareness for the issues relevant to UN reform and an effective United Nations. The
year 2007 marks the centenary of the Second Hague Peace Conference, which aimed at universal disarmament and binding international jurisdiction (going to court instead of going to war).
Presently UNFOR 2007 is supported by 24 academics and peace activists, including two academic directors of peace institutes in Germany and Austria. The campaign represents global concerns, based on individual and group initiative,
unaided by corporate, government or denominational sponsorship. The initiator and coordinator of the project is a peace historian, and historian of international and constitutional law, diplomacy and Asian history. His dissertation on Shidehara Kijûrô (Kiel University,1997), which deals extensively with international relations, peace diplomacy in
the20th century, and constitutional law, was published in German by the German-Japanese Jurists Association ( Hamburg 1998), and is presently being translated into English. (CLICK here for a brief summary and introduction
in English!) UNFOR 2007 has recently approached the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Kofi Annan, and written to him on behalf of Article 9, which we believe, is part of the heritage of mankind, having come out of the
atomic bombings in 1945. (See copy of the letter attached!)

One of our primary concerns at this time is the Japanese Constitution's Article 9, which is aiming at abolishing the institution of war. Research shows that the Japanese Constitution (JC) is not foreign but almost entirely based on local, indigenous sources, though written by the Americans(see the recent book review attached). Article 9 must be seen as a cornerstone of a UN System of Collective Security to become effective in the near future. However, Article 9 is in danger of being revised.

Our proposal

UNFOR 2007 is proposing in the "International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World" to have Article 9 declared a ' MONUMENT OF A CULTURE OF PEACE ', with a clear view toward abolishing war and instituting an effective system of collective security. It should be noted that Article 9 is to be seen in the general context of the constitutional law of peace (droit constitutionnel de la paix) and together with the relevant UN provisions is a key toward achieving collective security. (See list of constitutional clauses and publication on Article 9,

We would also like to ask you, if possible, to put our organization on your list of international organizations.
For a brief outline of our objectives click here (English/French/German/Japanese)!

Yours sincerely,

Dr. phil. Klaus Schlichtmann, coordinator

284 The means to real peace. -

No government nowadays admits that it maintains an army so as to satisfy occasional thirsts for conquest; the army is supposed to be for defence. That morality which sanctions self-protection is called upon to be its advocate. But that means to reserve morality to oneself and to accuse one‘s neighbour of immorality, since he has to be thought of as ready for aggression and conquest if our own state is obliged to take thought of means of self-defence; moreover, when our neighbour denies any thirst for aggression just as heatedly as our State does, and protests that he too maintains an army only for reasons of legitimate self-defence, our declaration of why we require an army declares our neighbour a hypocrite and cunning criminal who would be only too happy to pounce upon a harmless and unprepared victim and subdue him without a struggle. This is how all states now confront one another: they presuppose an evil disposition in their neighbour and a benevolent disposition in themselves. This presupposition, however, is a piece of inhumanity as bad as, if not worse than, a war would be; indeed, fundamentally it already constitutes an invitation to and cause of wars, because, as aforesaid, it imputes immorality to one‘s neighbour and thereby seems to provoke hostility and hostile acts on his part. The doctrine of the army as a means of self-defence must be renounced just as completely as the thirst for conquest. And perhaps there will come a great day on which a nation distinguished for wars and victories and for the highest development of military discipline and thinking, and accustomed to making the heaviest sacrifices on behalf of these things, will cry of its own free will: ,we shall shatter the sword‘ - and demolish its entire military machine down to its last foundations. To disarm while being the best armed, out of anelevation of sensibility - that is the means to real peace, which must always rest on a disposition for peace: whereas the so-called armed peace such as now parades about in every country is a disposition to fractiousness which trusts neither itself nor its neighbour and fails to lay down its arms half out of hatred, half out of fear. Better to perish than to hate and fear, and twofold better to perish than to make oneself hated and feared - this must one day become the supreme maxim of every individual state! - As is well known, our liberal representatives of the people lack the time to reflect on the nature of man: otherwise they would know that they labour in vain when they work for a ,gradual reduction of the military burden‘. On the contrary, it is only when this kind of distress is at its greatest that the only kind of god that can help here will be closest at hand.  The tree of the glory of war can be destroyed only at a single stroke, by a lightning-bolt: lightning, however, as you well know, comes out of a cloud and from on high.
