Our resources

In an effort to make peace a more central area of study, for students, teachers and academics, the Institute for Economics and Peace works with a growing network of schools and universities globally. At the Primary and Secondary level, we have developed a range of resources for teachers to introduce peace into the classroom across a number of subjects. At the tertiary level, we are working with academics and universities, including business schools and economics departments, to develop deeper research into peace and its value within society.


In a hyper-connected world, the sources of many of the current global challenges are multidimensional, increasingly complex and span national borders. Positive Peace, or the attitudes, institutions and structures that sustain peaceful societies, offers a new way to achieve sustainable development, violence reduction and resilience. Engage with our transformational Positive Peace program through our research, workshops, education and conferences.
