A further recommendation suggests establishment of a university institute to study peace and the dynamics of conflict.
These and other recommendations follow the review of how Australia should mark the Anzac Centenary and the 100 years of service under the Anzac tradition since.
The Anzac centenary commission, whose members include former prime ministers Malcolm Fraser and Bob Hawke, handed its final report to Prime Minister Julia Gillard on Monday.
Establishing an Anzac Centre for the study of peace, conflict and war is a key recommendation.
The report says it should “focus on the deeper sources and dynamics of conflict itself” rather than the history of military operations as the war memorial already does.

“The Anzac Centre’s main focus would be the study of the nature of social conflicts, cause of violence and definitions of peace, as well as research into new structures for resolving conflicts,” the commission states.
The centre would be a degree-granting university attached to an existing institution. It would cater for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Another recommendation is for a re-enactment of the departure, on November 1, 1914, of the ships carrying Australian and New Zealand troops bound for Egypt and ultimately Gallipoli on April 25, 1915.
“This event could include an assembling of vessels in King George Sound on the morning of November 1, 2014, representative of the convoy of 100 years ago,” the commission states.
Other recommendations include mobile exhibits to travel around the country and a program of restoration of memorials and cenotaphs.

Accepting the report in Canberra on Monday, Ms Gillard thanked the commission members for their work.
“As we move towards the centenary of Gallipoli and World War I the nation is presented with a special moment to reflect on what it means to be Australian … and be involved in conflicts,” she said.
The prime minister said the commemorations would run from 2014 to 2018 with April 25, 2015, being marked with “profound respect”.
“But we will as we reflect on Gallipoli and World War I also be reflecting on all the other wars, conflicts and peacekeeping that our nation has been engaged in.”
