History and governanceEdit

IIPDS was founded in 2005 by the Asian Ressource Foundation (ARF), an international organization founded in 1996 and whose objective is to bring an Asian initiative to meet the needs of vulnerable communities in the field of education of children, child rights, women empowerment and youth leadership development.[3] The IIPDS was therefore created to meet a need for training and research in the field of peace and development in order to provide scientific support to all contemporary humanitarian issues.[4]

Mr. Abdus Sabur is the convenor of the International Institute of Peace and Development Studies and the president of ARF.[5]

TrainingEdit

The main training activity of IIPDS is the School of Peace Studies and Conflict Transformation which takes place once a year at IIPDS headquarters in Bangkok. Launched in 2006, this annual school focuses on training on mechanisms for understanding peace and conflict in international and local contexts, on positive conflict transformation and the prevention of violence.[6][7][8][9][10]

ResearchEdit

In addition to regular IIPDS publications, the institute regularly issues reports on specific subjects, as well as books compiling several works by researchers, in cooperation with ARF[11]
