Envisioning a World at Peace (The Carter Center)

301 views 5 months ago
For more information on the Carter Center's work to advance peace and health worldwide, please visit http://www.cartercenter.org.

Amid the trend toward greater democracy, The Carter Center has become a pioneer in the field of election observation, monitoring nearly 100 national elections to help ensure that the results reflect the will of the people.

Beyond elections, the Center seeks to deepen democracy by nurturing full citizen participation in public policy-making and by helping to establish government institutions that bolster the rule of law, fair administration of justice, access to information, and government transparency.

A culture of respect for human rights is crucial to permanent peace. The Center supports the efforts of human rights activists at the grass roots, while also working to advance national and international human rights laws that uphold the dignity and worth of each individual.

When democracy backslides or formal diplomacy fails, the Center offers conflict resolution expertise and has furthered avenues for peace in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia.

Since 1982, The Carter Center has shown in more than 70 nations that creating a world at peace is a very possible journey, one step at a time.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter Play

Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.), thirty-ninth president of the United States and Nobel laureate, was born Oct. 1, 1924, in the small farming town of Plains, Ga.

Some of the Carter administration's significant foreign policy accomplishments included the Panama Canal treaties, the Camp David Accords, the treaty of peace between Egypt and Israel, the SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, and the establishment of U.S. diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China. He championed human rights throughout the world. On the domestic side, the administration's achievements included a comprehensive energy program conducted by a new Department of Energy; deregulation in energy, transportation, communications, and finance; major educational programs under a new Department of Education; and major environmental protection legislation, including the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.

In 1982, in partnership with Emory University, President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, founded The Carter Center. Actively guided by President and Mrs. Carter, the nonpartisan and nonprofit Center works to resolve conflict, promote democracy, protect human rights, and prevent disease and other afflictions.

On Dec. 10, 2002, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2002 to Mr. Carter "for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development."

"People everywhere share the dream of a world
without violence, disease, poverty, and injustice. For
more than 25 years, The Carter Center has spread
hope by taking action in partnership with others to
overcome these challenges. Our staff helps others by offering them the tools and knowledge they need to improve their own lives. Progress can be seen in the faces of forgotten peoples who have found new hope by casting their first vote, ridding their villages of debilitating diseases, or laying down arms for the prospect of peace. Underlying all of our work is our belief in the basic human rights to live in peace, free from oppression, and with adequate food, shelter, health care, and economic opportunity." -- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter

Fighting Disease - Carter Center Health Programs Play

At The Carter Center, we work to build hope in some of the world's most impoverished and forgotten communities. Our Health Programs prevent the suffering of millions of people around the world from diseases often ignored by others. Many of the most severe afflictions are entirely preventable. Yet people living in developing nations die or are disabled because they do not have access to the services they need to treat their illness or avoid infection entirely. Every day our experts show people how they can take steps to transform their own lives.
