Peace Movements

The three case studies which form this theme concern three very different peace movements, the best known of which is probably the British Peace Pledge Union, formed in 1934. Established at almost the same time was the Canadian Youth Congress: the records for this group also contain materials relating to the Canadian League for Peace and Democracy. The third group represented here is a more recently formed Canadian movement, Tools for Peace.

In addition to these three case studies, there is a study of the Pugwash Movement which has been placed in the theme Nuclear Disarmament.

We have also selected other interesting materials, including many posters, from the following archives that are not linked to any specific case study. They include an iconic John Lennon poster, "Give Peace A Chance".
