International Institute on Peace Education 2014
The Challenge of Abolition:
Transcending a Century of Worldwide Wars
July 6-13, 2014 * Vilnius, Lithuania
It is with great regret that we announce that the 2014 International Institute on Peace Education has been cancelled. Unfortunately we were unable to meet our fundraising goals to provide scholarships and offset general costs that are essential to keeping the program affordable.

A Statement on Military Violence against Women addressed to the 57th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, March 4-15, 2013
Violence against Women is Integral to War and Armed Conflict - The Urgent Necessity of the Universal Implementation of UNSCR 1325
The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meets annually at the UN’s New York Headquarters to assess the situation in regard to member states’ actions toward achieving the goal of equality between men and women, one of its founding principles. The reports and deliberations each year focus on particular topics. The 57th session of CSW (March 4-15, 2013) discussed the crucial and complex issues of violence against women. Because the intergovernmental conference devoted little attention to the ways that war and armed conflict produce multiple forms of violence against women, many nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) endorsed and addressed to the Commission the Statement on Military Violence against Women posted here on the IIPE website to inform peace educators about the issues and to garner additional endorsements from individuals and NGOs.

IIPE 2014 Scholarship Appeal
Help Us Raise $10,000
We need your help! For every $750 we raise we are able to cover the entire participation costs (food, lodging and local transportation for 8 days) for one participant in need. Considering the costs of other similar programs (on average $2000 for a week long training) this is a great bargain. We believe that your creativity and generosity can help us to raise our goal of a $10,000 for the 2014 IIPE. This is enough money to provide more than 14 full scholarships.
