 Who We Are

Institute for Peace & Dialogue, IPD is one of the leading organiser of several successful annual international academic trainings and research programs in Switzerland in the field of peacebuilding, conflict transformation, mediation, security, intercultural dialogue and human rights. Through these events IPD bring together state, private and public sector representatives.

IPD dedicates itself to the promotion of prevention of potential conflicts between and within states, companies and communities by strengthening institutional dialogue, mediation and academic education with the participation of civil societies, INGOs, business and state institutions. To achieve this, IPD provides its beneficiaries with academic-scientific programs (Academic Trainings and 3-12 Month Research Programs), educational materials and skills transfer.

IPD invites and work with state institutions, companies, INGOs, think tanks, researchers, media and interested public actors for the cooperation and implementation of conflict management. Through facilitating creative, innovative, effective and sustainable initiatives, IPD aims to empowering constructive intercultural dialogue, good global governance, responsible leadership, peaceful conflict transformation, active global citizenship, human security and welfare through, amongst others, mediation and non-violence methods. IPD is a non-commercial, non.political, non-religious and non-Profit Organisation.

Our Vision

Our vision is the education of an institutionalized civil society platform in peace-building, mediation, conflict transformation and intercultural dialogue, to convey a peaceful approach and behavior.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower civil society capacities in peacebuilding, conflict resolution, mediation and intercultural dialogue fields to build up a solution-oriented positive thinking in their work, community and family in order to have institutional impact for the sake of whole society development.   

We Strongly Believe

1. Desperate situation and non-solving problems are not eternal.

2. It is possible to make common decision and find common values, even the both conflict sides are thinking differently.

3. If the hostility thinking becomes  stronger, there are no winner and right side.

4. Protracted conflicts on the same time endanger to the development and prosperity of conflict parties.

5. Any peaceful mediation and negotiation actions are useful than nothing.
