About us

Center for Global Nonkilling (CGNK) builds on two decades of work by Glenn Paige, a former soldier and now Professor Emeritus, University of Hawai`i, who published Nonkilling Global Political Science in 2002. CGNK was established as a global nonprofit organization in Honolulu, Hawai`i, in late 2008 by a major grant from Humanity United. Based on extensive research and concrete evidence, CGNK believes it is possible to create societies where killing is significantly reduced, and eventually eradicated. This begins with cherishing the value and potential of each human life, and addressing the human conditions that lead to killing. We are committed to the realization of a world where killing is not taken for granted, and where the elimination of killing is a goal broadly embraced by people of all religious, cultural, ethnic, racial and political backgrounds.
