About the Organization for World Peace Research division

The Organization for World Peace Research (OWPR) documents and writes reports on various world issues that threaten world peace with a focus on issues that require international cooperation, arguing for peaceful, non-combative solutions to complex issues. In this regard, the OWPR seeks to reroute the general thinking that humanitarian crises requires armed military interventions, and move this way of thinking towards strategic problem solving. The OWPR conducts research on current events related to international armed conflict, civil war, as well as the military response from the international community. Published media typically involves data collected about civilian casualties, financial costs, the usage of underage combatants (child soldiers), and information regarding internally displaced people. The goal of our research is to spread awareness on the negative impact of war as well as the ineffectiveness of combative strategies in dealing with these issues.
