The Pillars of Peace is a research framework produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace to describe what makes a society peaceful. Acceptance of the Rights of Others is one of the eight “pillars” identified by the research.
Acceptance of the rights of others is a category designed to include both the formal institutions that ensure basic rights and freedoms as well as the informal social and cultural norms that relate to the behaviours of citizens. These factors relate to tolerance between the different ethnic, linguistic, religious, and socio-economic groups within a country.
