Gernika Gogoratuz is a Peace Research Centre. It was founded in 1987 in a unanimous decision by the Basque Parliament in remembrance of the 50th Anniversary of the Bombing of Gernika.

The Centre is supported by the Gernika Gogoratuz Foundation of whom the board members consist of representatives of Gernika-Lumo City Hall, the Ministry of Culture and Education, University and Research of the Basque Government, and Rectors of University of Basque Country – Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, the University of Deusto, the University of Mondragon, and the Gernika Gogoratuz Association.

The mission of Gernika Gogoratuz is to enrich the symbol of Gernika with regard to the past, by remembering and honouring the history of Gernika, and with regard to the future, by contributing, with a backing of scientific thought, to the generation of an emancipatory, just and reconciliatory peace both in the Basque Country and worldwide.
