Abstract

This study examines the conditions for Socio-political peace and nonviolence from the perspective of Mahatma Gandhi, an Indian scholar and social activist. To maintain Socio-political peace and non-violence has been a perennial concern for individuals, communities and scholars. Several options for keeping peace and living non-violently have been offered by both theoreticians and social order crusaders. The problem, however, is on the durability and effectiveness of these options. Our objectives here are to explore Mahatma Gandhi’s perspectives on socio-political peace and non-violence, analyse the implications, with a view of suggesting ways of perfecting them for global socio-political order. To achieve this aim, we shall apply the philosophical methods of analysis, critical evaluation, reflective and speculative prescriptions. By this approach, it is hoped that this study would benefit all those engaged in the debates for global peace and socio-political order, either theoretically or practically. The study promises to ignite fresh light of understanding of the issues and contribute to the knowledge of restoration of global peace and order.
