Have you saved the world from imminent disaster?
Will your delegation's peace proposal lead to a lasting peace?
Or will it be just a temporary truce or cease fire between India and Pakistan?
- Are angers going to cool off?
- Or will they just simmer under the surface waiting for the next Kashmir, to boil over like lava, engulfing everyone in their wake?
- Is there a formula for peace and a simple way to resolve conflicts?
- Or, does it depend on the circumstances in each country?
- Are countries a lot like people or is it easier to make friends between individuals?
- Are some of the methods used for negotiating for peace the same for friendship?
It wasn't easy to reach consensus within various groups to resolve this world issue!
- How did it feel to be in a position where you could influence the destiny of millions of people -- maybe even the entire world?
- Are you more confident in your ability to choose between many options?
Are you more likely to consider the points of view of others before making informed decisions?
Whether peace lasts or not you can feel proud of yourself!

You know something?
Your work does not end with this Web Quest on Peace and Diplomacy.
Continue reading on-line reports, accessing television and newspaper analysis to follow the latest developments in the subcontinent.
Check to see if your proposals are actually implemented to solve this conflict.
Keep on questioning and asking . . .
- How can you as individuals make a difference in even a small way to bring about
peace, cooperation and stability in the world.
- What should the priorities of countries be in the future?
- Should they spend most of their money on arms and ammunition?
- Or should they invest more in education, human development and health?
I leave you with this final question:
What can each of you do in your own countries and communities to ensure a safer and better world for your future generations?
Peace is not something you wish for;
it's something you make,
something you do,
something you are,
and something you give away!
