Founded in 1990 the International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Foundation, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, furthers the purposes and activities of the International Peace Research Association (IPRA) which, since 1965, has sought to enhance the processes of peace. The mission of the IPRA Foundation is to advance the field of peace research through rigorous investigation into the causes of conflict and examination of alternatives to violence. Peace researchers inform peace activities that inspire visions of a peaceful world.

Peace Research Grant 2021

The IPRA Foundation is proud that it receives so many superb peace research proposals from scholars around the world and it brings us great sadness that we are only able to fund a very small number of them.

 The vision of the IPRA Foundation is to:

  • Inspire visions of a peaceful world
  • Promote knowledge of non-violent peace strategies
  • Increase the number of peace scholars around the world
  • Encourage peace science and arts
  • Grow worldwide communication and collaboration among peace researchers
  • Further the purpose and activities of IPRA

Core Values:

  • Impactful and socially relevant research: They value original research, and peace activities informed by that research, that contributes to the world community and engages key stakeholders.
  • Positive Peace: They value peace and justice by nonviolent means.
  • Respect: They value respecting dignity, humanity, identity and diversity.
  • Empowerment: They value research by people of and within the most vulnerable and marginalized areas of their world community.
