The nations of the Americas have overcome their civil wars and bloody conflicts which unfortunately characterized the region for many years. Only one nation today continues to struggle with a conflict within its borders. However, the idea of “peace” extends beyond armed conflicts and is one that the OAS is committed to continue fostering among its member states. Through its many programs, such as the OAS Peace Fund, the Organization is helping to work towards this goal. The OAS works towards preventing conflicts and resolving disputes through a range of conflict resolution mechanisms including direct negotiation, mediation, judicial settlement and arbitration.
