Who We Are


Institute for Peace & Dialogue, IPD is one of the leading organiser of many successful international academic trainings and research programs in Switzerland in the field of peacebuilding, conflict transformation, mediation, security, intercultural dialogue, leadership and human rights.

Through these events IPD bring together academicians, state, private and public sector representatives for the sake of empowering global education and building useful networking.

On the same time IPD implemented 3 ZurichEduCa Expo events in 2017, 2018 and 2019 with the participation of Exhibitors from Switzerland, Korea, USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Hungary, Latvia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Taiwan, Australia, Belgium and United Arab Emirates.

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 Programs 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.


Most conflict situations share some of the characteristics mentioned below

- They need not be inevitable nor eternal.

- Even if parties privy to the conflict are of differing opinions, solutions can be found through building on common values and fostering collective decision making.

- If hostile behaviour escalates, all sides lose.

- Protracted conflicts endanger the development and prosperity of conflict parties.

- Any effort towards dialogue, mediation and negotiation should always be encouraged.
