US Institute of Peace (1984, Washington; 85 staff;

The US Institute of Peace is “national, nonpartisan and independent”. It was founded by “Congress and dedicated to the proposition that a world without violent conflict is possible, practical, and essential for the United States and global security.” In conflict-zones abroad, it “works with local partners to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict to reduce future crises and the need for costly interventions”. It does this by linking “research, policy, training, analysis, and direct action to support those who are working to build a more peaceful, inclusive world.”
