INTRODUCTION

The Perdana Global Peace Forum 2005, organized by the Perdana Leadership Foundation on December 15 -17 2005 at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, intended to provide an international platform for the discussion of current world problems and through comprehensive discourse, provide ideas to make our world a better and safer place. The Forum brought together a diverse and select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, prominent academics, community leaders, other stakeholders and key NGO representatives to collectively brainstorm on a practical way towards achieving global peace.

The makings of Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) began with the launching of the Kuala Lumpur Initiative to Criminalise War in the first Perdana Global Peace Forum in December 2005. Those who attended the Forum realized a serious, active and sustained struggle is needed to outlaw war and encourage global peace. Perdana Global Peace Organisation was formed on 4th of May 2006, a Non-Governmental Organisation that is spearheaded by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the Fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Following a shift of structure, Perdana Global Peace Foundation (PGPF) was formed in October 2010.

Killings in war are as criminal as the killings within societies in times of peace.

Since killings in peace time are subject to the domestic law of crime, killings in war must likewise be subject to the international law of crimes. This should be so irrespective of whether these killings in war are authorized or permitted by domestic law.

All national leaders who initiate aggression must be subjected to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.
