Peace and justice are words that have a strong meaning and include a lot of things. It takes a strong institution to be able to promote or encourage peace and justice. The University tries to achieve peace and justice by delegating, or choosing many representatives to protect academic freedom, inform the public and debate issues by giving lectures and workshops, and participate with the community. The decisions made at these levels branch outwards and upwards in the political system and affects national as well as international law.
