In order to achieve peace and prevent violence as their longtime dream, human beings have tested various ways so far, including the strengthening of individual conscience, legislation, establishment of law enforcement institutions and establishments of international and civil institutions. However, consideration of such cases is essential and can help reduce violence, but in practice it has never been able to build lasting peace and prevent violations of rights of individual beings. Meanwhile, one of the ways that can significantly contribute to reducing violence -and is considered more by scientific circles because of the global atmosphere spread and interaction between people and nations- is “dialogue ".
What will be discussed in this article is the relationship between power - as a general and widespread matter that includes all individual and … areas and levels- and dialogue, and that how this process can help build peace.
In this regard the views of different scholars about the importance and impacts of dialogue will be analyzed and finally, a model for power based on consensus and dialogue - that could create lasting peace both domestically and globally - will be presented.
