TFF PressInfo # 439: New peace platform – The Transnational

Lund, Sweden – December 30, 2017

It’s tomorrow, at December 31, 2017 at 1200 noon CET, that we open The Transnational to the world.

It’s a homepage, an archive of some 7000 original research-based articles over more than 30 years.

It’s a blog by TFF Associates – the finest and most experienced community devoted to the UN Charter norm that peace shall be created by peaceful means.

It’s curated materials from around the world, in easy-to-find themes and menus. It’s links to global news, analyses and inspiration.

It’s texts, images, videos, music – culture and art too. Because peace is much much more than just no war.

Peace is the basis of the good society.

It’s an innovative, multi-dimensional platform for peace – research, analysis, education and policy.

It’s factual – in contrast to much else today – it’s critical and constructive.

It’s diagnosis, prognosis and solutions.

It’s interactive and adapted to your phone, tablet and screen.

There are already around 150 posts. But brand new as it is, there are themes not filled yet. They will be. Much to follow. So sign up and follow what we do and say through TFF PressInfo – free, safe and even beautiful.

You’ll immediately see this is something new and different.

It’s The Transnational opening tomorrow – also to take over some of the debate from social media. Because:

TFF does not accept to be a target of censorship so sadly practised now by Facebook, Google and Twitter. Just because we work for peace.

We can learn to conflict and to peace intelligently.

We can stop being victims of the violence of powers who suffer from conflict and peace illiteracy. You would not like to drive on roads where no one had had any instruction in road signs, traffic rules and driving licenses didn’t exist, would you?

But that’s our world. In a nutshell.

The Transnational will become your gateway to those issues – the most controversial of all: anti-militarism and peace creation.

That struggle continues in the new year. Our best wishes to you and yours – and the world – in 2018!

Jan Oberg, PhD, director and co-founder
