UNESCO names IIP as a Category 2 Center

UNESCO and IIP will work closely to promote a culture of peace


On October 30, 2011 the General Conference of UNESCO approved the establishiment of the International Institute for Peace at Rutgers University as a category 2 institute under the auspices of UNESCO. The General Conference thus welcomed the recommendation put forward by the Executive Board of UNESCO last September.

"We are extremely happy for this honor and this responsibility--said Aldo Civico, co-founder and co-chair of IIP--Wtih UNESCO we share the same mission to build peace in the minds of men and women. We are proud about this opportunity to work hand in hand with a great institution like UNESCO to promote a culture of peace especially among the youth."
