Tamen a proposito, inquam, aberramus. Non igitur potestis voluptate omnia dirigentes aut tueri aut retinere virtutem.
The International Peace Bureau (IPB), the oldest global peace network with more than 300 organizations in over 70 countries, was founded in 1891/92. We are a Nobel Peace Laureate (1910) and over the years, 13 of our officers have been recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize.
IPB is dedicated to the vision of a World Without War. Our current main programme centres on Disarmament for Sustainable Development and within this, our focus is mainly on the reallocation of military expenditure. We believe that by reducing funding for the military sector, significant amounts of money could be released for social projects, domestically or abroad, which could lead to the fulfilment of real human needs and the protection of the environment.
