The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) is an international non-governmental organisation seeking to advance trans-disciplinary research into the conditions of sustainable peace and the causes of war and other forms of violence. IPRA encourages worldwide cooperation designed to assist the advancement of peace research, in particular: to promote national and international studies and teaching related to the pursuit of world peace, to facilitate contacts and cooperation between scholars and educators throughout the world, and to encourage the worldwide dissemination of the results of peace research.
