A European project to promote the development of a culture of peace
The Bruxelles Declaration was officially established in occasion of the the conference "Peace and Prosperity, founding values of the European Union" held on 28 November 2011, at the European Parliament in Brussels.
This declaration of intent is meant to encourage projects and actions that are aimed at promoting peace in its most universal meaning, based on the significance of each individual person. It is inspired by the universal ideals of human dignity, freedom, equality and solidarity enshrined in the preamble of the "Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union” and confirmed by the Nizza Declaration in 2000 and the Lisbon Treaty in 2009. The Nobel Prize for Peace awarded to the European Union confirms and underlines the importance of actions like the Pledge.
Recalling all previous resolutions on the promotion of the right of peoples to peace adopted by the General Assembly, the Commission on Human Rights and the Human Rights Council of 24 June 2016
To the United Nations General Assembly and to all nations of the world,
we respectfully submit:
