The Peace Movement

This is a curated selection of the University of Melbourne Archive’s extensive collections relating to the Peace Movement in Australia.

The Peace Movement cannot be defined as a single entity as it has taken various forms over the decades, as groups from different religious or political backgrounds have organised and dissented against specific wars or the threat of war, against weapons or conscription or oppressive governments. UMA has a significant strength in this area with collections of archival records from a range of organizations and individuals that span the anti-fascist peace movement of the 1930’s up until the anti-nuclear movement of the 1980’s. With this subject guide comes UMA’s gratitude to Les Dalton, for his research and work on collating biographical information for many collections within the peace movement archive.
