Established in 1964 as a non-profit international scientific association of peace researchers and educators, International Peace Research Association (IPRA) forms the world’s oldest consortium of multi-disciplinary workers the field of peace research. We seek to answer-- the contours of conflict and its prevention, the successes and failures of building justice-based societies, the role of resistance in fighting oppression, war, and all its causes—we have no time left to avoid the hard work ahead.
IPRA’s General Conference in 2023—to be held in Trinidad & Tobago in the Caribbean—a crossroads of the Americas—provides a distinct opportunity to do just that. To progress toward IPRA's mission, we will be a Pan-American, Pan-African, Indigenous and Maroon-centered gathering. Therefore we invite a diverse international collective of researchers, scholars, artists, activists, protectors, and youth to join us as we envision a world built on justice and peace through collective knowledge-building, sharing and action.
IPRA’s 2023 Trinidad conference is a space we must immerse ourselves: with our dreams and our most creative thinking about the world we must rebuild. Throughout the post-Covid 19 planet, our fluid movements of movements—of all types and tactics, diverse ideologies and methodologies—we must do the deep research to develop effective strategies such that a “new normality” takes root to replace the barbarous old one.
