Pace neutra


The article aims to define neutral peace as an analytical concept and a research-action tool through which to define the points that set up problems and conflicts inside the social system. The goal is to "neutralize" the violent (cultural and/or symbolic) elements that inhabit the cultural models that each society develops to organize relations between individuals, families, groups and institutions. The method is based on the interconnection between language and dialogue, essential elements in building the relationship with Others and where nonviolence and assertiveness, respect and reflection take shape, following the principle that education for peace must be set in "learning to criticize". Focusing on the endurance of mental patterns that characterize human action, the goal is to create a new culture, an “another world”, in which social interaction is based on empathy, positive tolerance and mutual exchange.
