International Institute on Peace Education

The IIPE was founded in 1982 by Dr. Betty Reardon and faculty colleagues at Teachers College Columbia University and has been held annually in different parts of the world. For 30 years the IIPE has been providing unique short-term, residential, cooperative learning experiences in peace education. The IIPE is not a conference but rather a “learning community” in which the organizers and participants work together to nurture an inclusive, highly interactive learning environment. It is an intensive multicultural and cooperative learning experience in which participants learn from and with each other about substantive peace issues and interactive teaching approaches. The IIPE is also an opportunity for networking and community building among those who educate and work for a culture of peace in the host region and around the world.

The National Peace Academy is the home of the IIPE secretariat and coordinates the annual IIPE program.

The IIPE maintains an independent website:
