Rotary Peace Fellowships:  "Every year Rotary selects some of the world's brightest and most dedicated professionals to study at seven Rotary Peace Centers around the world.  Our more than 1,400 program alumni work in over 115 countries and serve as leaders in governments and nongovernment organizations, education and research, law enforcement and the military, as well as in international organizations dedicated to peace."
History of Peacebuilding:  "Peace is a cornerstone of our mission....we see peace as a living, dynamic expression of human development.  Rotary was present at the inception of the United Nations in 1945.... Today Rotary holds the highest consultative status offered to a nongovernmental organization by the UN Economic and Social Council... We approach the concept of peace with cohesion, inclusivity, and a broad scope that finds more ways for people to get involved."
