Vision, Mission and Values


The Institute of International Peace Leaders (IIPL) stands as a beacon of hope in the realm of peace-building and global harmony. Established in October, 2019 as an independent think tank, IIPL operates without affiliation to any specific political party, ideology, or religious sect. Its activities are driven by a mission to serve the public good rather than financial gain., IIPL embodies the ethos of non-partisanship, non-politicalism, non-sectarianism, and non-profit pursuit of peace. IIPL functions as an independent think tank, implying that it conducts research, analysis, and advocacy on peace-related issues free from external influence or bias.


At its core, IIPL is committed to advancing peace-building initiatives through innovative strategies and a value-based approach. Through rigorous research, analysis, and advocacy, IIPL seeks to foster an understanding of the root causes of conflicts and promote sustainable solutions that prioritize human rights, justice, and equality.


One of IIPL’s primary objectives is to raise awareness of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the principles of human rights. By educating communities, policymakers, and stakeholders on the importance of these frameworks, IIPL aims to mobilize collective action towards achieving a more just, equitable, and sustainable world.


Recognizing the interconnectedness of peace, development, and environmental sustainability, IIPL also addresses the pressing challenge of climate change. Through its advocacy efforts and partnerships, IIPL advocates for policies and actions that mitigate the impacts of climate change and promote environmental stewardship as integral components of peace-building efforts.


Central to IIPL’s mission is the cultivation of a new generation of young leaders in international relations and peace-building. Through training programs, mentorship initiatives, and educational resources, IIPL empowers young people with the skills, knowledge, and values needed to become effective agents of positive change in their communities and beyond.


In pursuit of its goals, IIPL engages in Track II diplomacy, harnessing the power of unofficial, non-governmental channels to facilitate dialogue, build trust, and explore innovative solutions to conflicts. By convening dialogues, conferences, and workshops, IIPL brings together diverse stakeholders, including diplomats, academics, civil society actors, and grassroots leaders, to forge consensus and promote understanding.


Through its network of Track II diplomats and peacebuilders, IIPL serves as a catalyst for positive change, working tirelessly to create a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world for present and future generations.


"The Institute of International Peace Leaders envisions a world where the absence of violent conflict is not only achievable but imperative for global security and human prosperity. We believe that sustainable peace is essential for fostering development, preserving nature, and fostering harmony among nations and communities."


"Our mission is to cultivate a global community of peace leaders committed to advancing the vision of a conflict-free world. Through education, advocacy, and collaboration, we strive to empower individuals and societies to build resilient peace frameworks that promote sustainable development, environmental stewardship, and harmonious coexistence."
