Welcome to IPRA, the network for peace researchers

Since 1964 IPRA has been pursuing interdisciplinary research into the most pressing issues related to sustainable peace around the world today. As a network of scholars, practitioners and decision-makers from all continents, we strive to stay at the cutting edge of the state of the art of peace. IPRA is about building communities of inquiry. For peace research closer to home, contact one of our five geographically distributed regional associations to learn about recent events and initiatives. If you are looking for a more specific discipline within peace and conflict research, get involved with one of IPRA's Commissions or Working Groups according to your area of specialisation. IPRA, the network for peace researchers, has just held its 23nd Global Conference in Sydney, in July 2010 which provided a space for approximately 500 researchers from all parts of the world to exchange actionable knowledge about this issue in order to advance theory, policy, and practice worldwide. The next conference is to be held in Ise city, Japan in November 2012.
