The United States Institute of Peace

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) works to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict around the world. USIP does this by engaging directly in conflict zones and by providing analysis, education, and resources to those working for peace. Created by Congress in 1984 as an independent, nonpartisan, federally funded organization, USIP’s more than 300 staff work at the Institute’s D.C. headquarters, and on the ground in the world’s most dangerous regions.

“Cases in Sahel, Lake Chad and other regions illustrate what works.”

“USIP as ‘Combat Multiplier’ for ‘Striking Success’ in Iraq.”
