      Department Overview:

      World BEYOND War is an organization that aims to create a global movement to abolish the institution of war itself – not limited to any particular group or war. It seeks to take war off the table as a viable option, replacing it with a global security system that is supported by international law, diplomacy, collaboration, and human rights – and defending these ideals with non-violent action, rather than the threat of violence.
