ABSTRACT

This paper addresses Daisaku Ikeda's way of realizing world peace, who is both the founder of Soka University in Japan and the president of SGI(Soka Gakai International). He is not been properly studied as a religious leader and a peace thinker. I specifically examined what actors were concerned and what level of governance was emphasized in the global governance regime in his 35 years of Peace Proposal through the research method of discourse analysis. The concepts of the UN and related to the UN appeared 1782 times in the text and 972 times(55%) of them were used as ways of realizing world peace. With this, we can say that he lays emphasis on the UN as a means of peacemaking. In addition, he described the concepts of the UN 219 times(23%) out of 972 in connection with the global governance. As cooperative partners in the global governance, NGO was considered to be the most important partner which was mentioned 151 times(69%) out of 219. As a result of this, we can judge that he emphasizes NGOs the most as the partner of the UN. In the analysis of cooperative form, the level of sharing basic value, which is the lowest level of global governance, was 137 times(63%) out of 219. The emphasis on the roles of the UN and NGO in the global governance regime was also confirmed in terms of quality. The researches on religious leaders will enrich the peace science which is a multi-discipline, if we study on religious leaders in various ways and study comparatively with leaders of other religions in the future.
