Two-Part Webinar Series 2/2: The History of Peace Movements and the IPB

16/06/2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Two-Part Webinar Series 2/2: The History of Peace Movements and the IPB

IPB presents a two-part webinar series to explore the past two centuries of peace movement activities, including the role of the IPB, which was founded in 1891.

In the first session, speakers Guido Grünewald and David Cortright will discuss the peace movement of the 19th century and early 20th century, leading up to the First World War. Special attention will be given to the role of the IPB prior to, during, and upon the conclusion of World War I. The presentation will then turn to the interwar period, the Second World War, and the years immediately following the war.

In the second session, Colin Archer and Reiner Braun will outline the developments in the peace movement during the Cold War period with video contributions from activists who were involved in protests in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s in different countries. The webinar will continue with the post-Cold War adaptation of the peace movement and present the modern context in which peace movements operate.

Both webinars will present opportunities for questions and comments from participants. The sessions are focused primarily on the peace movement in Europe and North America, although the speakers will connect their experiences to the global peace movement which has come together strongly in recent years.

Participants may choose to attend a single session but are encouraged to take part in both to understand the complete picture. To register, send a message to with your name and a short description about yourself.
