Contact Theory

Prasangka dapat dihilangkan dengan adanya kontak dan kesetaraan antara kelompok mayoritas dengan minoritas dalam upaya mencapai tujuan bersama. Dampak dari kontak ini akan meningkat apabila aksinya didukung oleh norma, hukum dan kearifan lokal yang berlaku, serta mengarah kepada penyamaan persepsi tentang kepentingan bersama, kemanusiaan yang sama antar dua kelompok. 

-Gordon W. Allport, The Nature of Prejudice (1954)

How PeaceGen was Founded

The birth of PeaceGen began with a meeting between Irfan Amalee and Eric Lincoln in 2006. At that time, Eric was an English teacher at the Mizan Publishing office, where Irfan worked. Irfan was one of Eric's students. Amidst English learning sessions, Eric asked his students about world politics. Irfan responded that America, Eric's home country, was the root of various issues. At that moment, Eric regarded Irfan as a Taliban member.

How PeaceGen was Founded

Starting from the meeting, Irfan and Eric began discussing many things and getting to know each other. Eventually, Eric discovered that Irfan was not as he had imagined. Likewise, the reverse was true. The prejudices between Irfan and Eric were gone as they endeavored to understand and appreciate each other. Since then, Irfan and Eric have been discussing more frequently, eventually producing a work known as the 12 Basic Peace Values.

How PeaceGen was Founded

Eventually, Irfan and Eric became friends and established PeaceGeneration Indonesia in 2007 to spread the values of peace with the 12 Basic Peace Values module.

12 Basic Peace Values

Here's module 12 of Basic Peace Values, which serves as the main formula of PeaceGen. The flow of this module consists of three parts, starting from peace with oneself, peace with others, and conflict resolution. The three stages in this flow encompass those 12 values, including self-acceptance, prejudice, ethnic differences, religious differences, gender differences, economic status differences, group or gang differences, diversity, conflict, rejection of violence, acknowledgment of mistakes, and finally, forgiveness. This module has now been adapted into various versions. There are religion-based versions, such as the Muslim, Christian, and Buddhist versions. There are also versions based on language, including Indonesian, English, Acehnese, and Filipino versions. There are also adaptations for various ages and other contexts.
