The Decade to Overcome Violence (DOV) was affirmed by the participants of a worldwide Anglican peace conference entitled "Towards Peace in Korea (TOPIK)", held in South Korea, November 14-20, 2007.


The participants of the conference welcomed further conversation with all who committed to peacemaking and affirmed that "what we can do together, we must not do alone. Therefore, we commend the World Council of Churches' "Decade to Overcome Violence" and offer our support to that ongoing work, as well as to specific peacemaking projects sponsored by other denominations and faith groups."
