Vision and Mission


To be an international hub for peace and diplomacy studies contributing to global peace through research, education, training and mediation.


Our mission is not to replicate the work of other international peace institutes but to make a practical contribution to the promotion and maintenance of peace and stability within the region and beyond:

  • by promoting ongoing research, training, and capacity building in peace and diplomacy studies;
  • by preventing, mitigating, and resolving conflicts through exchange of ideas and experience;
  • by facilitating high-level dialogue between global peacebuilding players;
  • by promoting the engagement of youth in peacebuilding.
