About/what is IBP: The International Peace Bureau is dedicated to the vision of a World Without War. We are a Nobel Peace Laureate (1910); over the years, 13 of our officers have been recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Our 282 member organisations in 70 countries, together with individual members from a global network, bring together expertise and campaigning experience in a common cause. Our current main programme centres on Sustainable Disarmament for Sustainable Development.

IPB was born even before the UN´s predecessor, the League of Nations. As an organisation we have consistently argued that the international community needs a strong United Nations in order to tackle the many international problems facing it. At the same time we have always been critical of the way in which both the League and the UN have been manipulated by big states and powerful interests.

IPB has had Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council since the 1970s. We also have associate status with the Department of Public Information and with UNESCO.

IPB plays a central role in the Geneva-based Special NGO Committee for Disarmament, which is a sub-committee of CONGO, the Conference of NGO in Consultative Status with ECOSOC. We are in close touch with our sister group in New York, the NGO Committee for Disarmament, Inc. and monitor closely the work of the UN´s Geneva based Conference on Disarmament, the sole multilateral forum for disarmament negotiations.

In addition, IPB provides a space for member organizations to address specific issues at the UN Commission on Human Rights.

IPB’s work is funded by two principal sources at the present time:
