World Peace Foundation
(1910, Tufts University, Somerville, MA; staff 5;

Founded by Edwin Ginn, a Boston-based publisher of educational texts, the organization retains his mission: “Educating the people of all nations to a full knowledge of the waste and destructiveness of war and of preparation for war.”

In recent years WPF was led by Robert I. Rotberg at Harvard University (1993-2010) before moving to the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 2011.

The WPF program seeks “to make achieving peace a legitimate and recognized subject of public debate, scholarship, and policy,” and to catalyze an international intellectual conversation on “new threats to peace and the requisite new vision of world peace.”
