The article discusses the highlights of the Global Article 9 Conference to Abolish War which was held in Japan in May 2008. The renewed support for Article 9 has demonstrated the support for the renunciation of war. The conference aimed to reframe the debate over Article 9 by removing it from domestic Japanese politics and placing it on an international stage. Among the speakers are Cora Weiss, American peace activist and president of the Hague Appeal for Peace, and Kasim Turki, a humanitarian aid worker.
