[HWPL] 21 Global Legal Experts and the Birth of the ‘DPCW': Together for 'Cessation of War and World Peace'


[HWPL] 21 Global Legal Experts and the Birth of the ‘DPCW': Together for 'Cessation of War and World Peace'

Members of HWPL International Law Peace Committee

Through the founding of the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the global "Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)", a novel solution for peace has sprung forth which has drawn eyes of the world. 21 global legal experts have contributed to the creation of the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW, which is the solution for peace in a world tainted by conflict and which can bring about an end to the Korean War through denuclearization.

During an overseas peace tour led by HWPL Chairman Man-hee Lee, legal experts of different nationalities and religions gathered. Those who commended this 'international law for the cessation of war’ proposed by Chairman Lee centered their work of peace around the DPCW and became one, transcending border, creed and race for peace that mankind has only dreamt of.

Notable figures include the "father of the Bangladeshi Constitution", former Attorney General Dr. Kamal Hossain, who graduated from Oxford University with a doctoral degree in International Law, works as Barrister and Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh and ensured that the will of Chairman Lee was embedded within the DPCW. He has also made a significant contribution to his own peace work and recommended his student, Dr. Mohammad Nazrul Islam (Professor of International Law, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh) to finalize the drafting of the DPCW.

In addition, leading legal experts were encouraged to participate in the founding work of the DPCW.

President of the World Jurist Association, Dr. Franklin Hoet-Linares (Venezuela) personally reviewed the draft DPCW and delivered his feedback. He vigorously urged for the adoption of the DPCW as a resolution by the World Jurist Association. Pravin H Parekh, President of the Indian Society of International Law, and Dr. Fathi Kemicha (Tunisia), member of the International Law Association and the United Nations International Law Commission (ILC), both actively participated in the creation of the DPCW and throughout the advisory process.

The 21 legal experts who contributed to the drafting of the DPCW include: President of the International Law Association (ILA), Professor Said El-Dakkak (Egypt); former Chief Justice of Nepal, Kedar Nath Upadhyay; former chairman of the Arbitration Institute of the Finland Chamber of Commerce, Gustaf Möller; Secretary General of the International Law Association (Brazil), Arnaldo Sobrinho de Morais Neto; Professor and lawyer of international human rights, John Kirk Boyd (USA); and Professor of International Law at the University of Lisbon, Manuel de Almeida Ribeiro.

The DPCW is an acronym of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War that was proclaimed by Chairman Manhee Lee of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) to an audience of 30,000 youth from 130 countries on May 25th 2013.

  1. HWPL’s peace work is unprecedented. I sincerely hope it will continue with great vigour throughout 2022 and into 2023, as it seems peace and stability is needed now more than ever in these uncertain times. More than 30,000 people from 157 countries attended the 7th Anniversary HWPL World Peace Summit online on Sept. 18th 2021, and more than 200 schools worldwide have been designated HWPL Peace Academies, educating today's youth on the importance of peace.

    Moreover, many heads of state - both existing and former - have publicly declared their support for HWPL's Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), citing it as the only solution to ceasing all conflict and achieving peace on a global scale. The words of H.E. Viktor Yushchenko, former President of Ukraine, sums up the importance of the DPCW very well: “The DPCW is a perfect and balanced document that can be the basis of solidarity for peacekeeping in all countries of the world. I think all the leaders of the countries should support the DPCW.”

    May the words, 'We are One!' ring true as a lasting history✌️
