Hello,

I would like to quote your Institute for your definition of peace which was based on your research. I only saw it just now July 2, 2010 in your blog at http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/profiles/blog/show?id=780588%3ABlogPost%3A263660&xgs=1&xg_source=msg_share_post

For academic purposes, I would like to reference you properly. Hence, I would like to ask in which publication (book, monograph, journal article) did your definition (first?) appear. As you know, for an academic or research paper, I need to reference the source properly. Of course your blog is fine, but academic journals and other publications prefer more "reputable" printed hardcopy sources such as published books, etc. I look forward to your response. Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Several months ago, I submitted an application for the 2010 Justice Makers Competition. In doing so, I joined a global community of legal aid lawyers, policemen, and NGO officers that had proposed solutions for curbing torture and legal abuse on a local level.

Last month, I received word that my application was one of a handful of proposals to be named a JusticeMakers Finalist. With your assistance, I now have a shot at winning $5,000 to implement my idea.

Here's how you can help.

1. Register for www.justicemakers.net.
2. Login and click "Browse Finalists" on the left hand side of the page.
3. Browse my JusticeMakers username WAHEED, and click on it.
4. Click on the orange "Rate Me" icon that appears on the top of the page.
5. Read a short summary of my proposal and rate my project.
(Preferably with five stars.)

That's it! If on May 10th I have the highest average rating of any project, I'll win the $5,000 to implement my project. :)

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you in advance for your help.

Please ask your friends too for vote
