Fundació per la Pau (Foundation for Peace) is an NGO founded in 1983 that works for a world in peace. By means of an increasingly better informed and active public opinion, it promotes all the cultural and structural changes required to enable the eradication of violence in relationsships between people and cultures.
We work to promote peace research to improve our knowledge about the causes of violence and wars and how we can avoid them (conferences, seminars, publications, etc.).
We promote peace education as a way of replacing, in a progressive manner, the Culture of Violence for a Culture of Peace (exhibitions, activities and teaching materials, workshops, conferences, etc.).
We are involved in campaigns and political pressure initiatives in order to engage our political institutions in compromises to move toward disarmament, demilitarization, conflict prevention, respect for human rights and active promotion of the Culture of Peace.
We support people and groups working on conflicts peaceful resolution in different countries (the Bask Country, Colombia, Israel and Palestine…).
We are members of international networks and coalitions: IPB, IANSA, CMC, ICAN and HAP.
