We use data driven research to shift the way the world thinks about peace.

Through rigorous quantitative and qualitative analysis, in depth reports and convening of global experts for innovative discussions, the Institute for Economics and Peace is impacting traditional thinking on matters of security, defence and development.

Our research is regularly referenced in the global media and is used by the major international institutions to help shape policy. Our work is included in secondary and tertiary educational courses all around the world and referenced in thousands of books and publications.

The Institute reaches new and widespread audiences through an interactive portal that allows for public engagement in understanding peace,, events and conferences, social media networks and education modules, all of which drives positive change in an ever changing world.

The philanthropic funding that enabled the creation of IEP was recognized as one of the 50 most impactful philanthropic gifts in Australia’s history by a coalition of Australian Foundations.
