Who we are
Institute for Peace and Dialogue (IPD) is an independent, international non-profit and non-religious institute located in Lucerne, Switzerland where it dedicates itself in the promotion of the prevention of conflicts between and within states by strengthening institutional dialogue between civil societies, international peace- and state institutions. To achieve its purpose, IPD can provide its beneficiaries with institutional broad research-survey outputs, publication of educational materials, implementation of academic-scientific programs, carrying out mediation, negotiation, reconciliation initiatives as well as reports.
IPD invites state actors, policymakers, think tank centers, peace-builders, researchers, media and interested public actors for the cooperation and implementation of creative-innovative, effective and sustainable initiatives for the sake of empowering constructive intercultural dialogue, global governance, peaceful conflict transformation, active world citizenship, human security and responsible leadership.
Our vision is the education of an institutionalized civil society platform in peace-building, conflict transformation and intercultural dialogue, to convey a peaceful approach and behavior.
Our mission is to empower civil society capacities in peace-building, peace mediation and peace education to build up a solution-oriented positive thinking in their works in order to have an impact for the whole society.
