Abstract
Peace and different challenges we are currently facing in Europe, the need for a coordinated political European effort for promoting public policies and allocating appropriate resources in supporting a refreshed culture of peace inside and outside Europe represent the essence of this article. War and peace, international security, military tools and education, the priorities of the European Union are the basic references used on this purpose. From a historical perspective, the desire for peace of the humankind was supported in the 20th Century by important decisions taken by the international society, such as the signature of the Briand-Kellogg Pact (1928), the London Convention for the definition of the aggression (1933) and the UN Charter (1945). Nowadays, an appropriate and coordinated European political, economic, social and security management of the huge migration flow, generated by the conflicts in some other parts of the World, of terrorism and radicalization, the situation of different groups based on faith (for instance the Christians) should facilitate the promotion of a peaceful environment between and within the nations and discourage the tensions, conflicts and radicalization.
