Reducing direct and structural violence through satisfying human needs for security, identity, well-being, and self-determination, and promoting human rights, are essential in building a culture of peace. In Lebanon, a society that has seen much violence, the seeds of a nonviolent society are being nurtured in programs focused on women, and largely initiated and led by them.
