Our Statement

One of the pillars of IPI is its convening role. Each year IPI organizes a wide-ranging selection of meetings designed to facilitate strategic thinking and policy development on issues related to peace and security. IPI aims to strengthen public awareness through the generation of policy recommendations and the dissemination of research findings not only within the UN community, but within academic, political, civil society circles and beyond. This is achieved through a range of off- and on-the-record discussions, including policy fora focusing on expert briefings, examinations of military and police practices and preparations, book launches, speaker presentations, workshops and seminars, and full-day and multi-day conferences.
