The promotion of peace and justice is an important responsibility of governments, and it represents one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN, 2015). To date there has been little consideration of how career development services might contribute to this domain at a societal level. Rather the focus has been on career guidance and vocational rehabilitation interventions for offenders that are local and small scale. This article proposes five foundations on which to build a wider integration of career development with efforts to promote peace and justice. These are: (i) a conceptual foundation; (ii) an empirical foundation; (iii) a moral foundation; (iv) a security foundation; and (v) a public policy foundation.
