How can international neutrality be encouraged?
Arguably, encouraging international neutrality, with more countries having legal obligations to employ preventative diplomacy, remaining impartial and abstaining from partaking in warfare, could be a large step in the direction of world peace. How can governments, groups or even individuals advocate neutrality in an attempt to decrease conflict and promote peace in the world? un.org/en/events/neutralityday

The Non-Aligned Movement

In an age where countries were transitioning from colonialism and getting deeper embroiled in the Cold War a group of countries started the Non-Aligned Movement in an effort to not side with either the US or USSR. The movement began with an agreement between Yogoslavia and India in 1961 and is an effort to defend the independence and sovereignty of nations while fighting colonialism, occupation and foreign aggression against non-aligned member states. The movement has continued to carry out summits and the focus has shifted to the economic exploitation of marginalised countries, but remains a strong force in enabling and encouraging nations to embrace neutrality.

More effective multinational organisations for peace

Neutrality is an important component of passing fair judgement or facilitating unbiased diplomacy. In this regard organisations such as the UN and the ICC are meant to fill this role in international relations, and prosecuting international crimes against humanity, however arguably due to structural limitations neutrality is not truly realised here. More effective or effectively structured neutral multinational organisations could possibly help bring about greater neutrality in international relations and greater peace along with this, but difficult changes from the current climate would be imperative.
