Pioneering discourse on world peace, reimagining what’s possible
The World Peace Foundation has worked tirelessly to advance the global dialogue around issues of peace, justice and security. For the last ten years, The Fletcher School has been proud to serve as its home.
Boston book publisher Edwin Ginn established the International School of Peace in 1910 with a mission to educate a global audience about the destructiveness of war and quest for international peace. Over time, the organization changed its name but stayed true to Ginn’s original vision. Today, the World Peace Foundation is a leading international voice on complexities and challenges surrounding the ever-changing path to world peace.
In recognizing the 10-year anniversary of the Foundation’s affiliation with Fletcher, Dean Rachel Kyte commented, “Under the remarkable leadership of Alex de Waal, the World Peace Foundation has become the world's premiere thought leader for peace through its interconnected work across research, education and policy engagement. We look forward to continuing to support and to amplify its transformative work and scholarship."
