The peace movements across Europe are coming together for a month of action in September 2021 to demand a safer and more peaceful future. A network of organizations, Nuke Free Europe, wants a nuclear-weapon-free Europe; an end to the stationing of US nuclear weapons in Europe; and we demand that European states sign up to and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
Eagerly working towards the prohibition of nuclear weapons, IPB is a host for the secretariat of the international global network Abolition 2000 since October of 2017. The common objective is to create a safer world for the future generations by achieving the complete elimination of nuclear weapons. Continue reading “Hosting the Abolition 2000 Secretariat”

IPB takes every opportunity to talk about the imbalance between military and social spending and organizes side events, seminars and exhibitions, together with like-minded partner organizations.

Ever since its creation in 1972, IPB has been an active member of the NGO Committee for Disarmament which acts as an intermediary between UN disarmament agencies and disarmament NGOs.
Committee members share news and information about disarmament activities and organise joint events, usually in Geneva.
IPB has a long history in peace education. In 2012, we are building on this tradition by creating an online course at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) and their Campus for Peace. The course focuses on Disarmament for Development and aims at training a new generation of advocates. The programme is coordinated by Prof. Alicia Cabezudo, IPB Vice-President. It will run from March 27 to July 27 and will be open to students at the university level. For further information, please visit the UOC website.
