About the International Peace Bureau

The International Peace Bureau is dedicated to the vision of a World Without War. Its  main programme centres on Disarmament for Sustainable Development and within this, the network focuses mainly on the reallocation of military expenditureThe bureau believes that by reducing funding for the military sector, significant amounts of money could be released for social projects, domestically or abroad, which could lead to the fulfillment of real human needs and the protection of the environment. At the same time, we support a range of disarmament campaigns and supply data on the economic dimensions of weapons and conflicts. Our campaigning work on nuclear disarmament began already in the 1980s.

IPB has a membership of 300 organizations in 70 countries, together with individual members, form a global network, bringing together knowledge and campaigning experience in a common cause, linking experts and advocates working on similar issues in order to build strong civil society movements.

IPB plays a central role in the Geneva-based NGO Committee for Disarmament, a committee of CONGO, the Conference of NGOs in Consultative Status with ECOSOC. There are sister committees in New York and Vienna.

IPB is a Nobel Peace Laureate (1910); over the years, 13 of its officers have been recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize.
