Synonyms and other interesting words about peace

This year’s Hysteria Writing Competition has a theme of peace and it would be easy to fall into familiar tropes and themes. Whilst a retelling in a fresh way can excite a reader, it’s rare to get something truly different so in the spirit of helping everyone along I thought I’d trawl the web’s best dictionaries and thesauri to come up with a definitive list of words/topics you could use in any writing competition that has a theme of peace.

Remember, you don’t need to use the word itself, just that the entry has to reflect the theme.
