South Asian Institute For Peace And Reconciliation

Peace Institute which focuses on the role of religion in conflict and peace building located in South Asia
(SA) is a unique and much-needed addition to global Peace Studies scholarship and practice. This does
not necessarily mean that the Institute will have an exclusive geographical focus on South Asia, but that
it values Asian knowledge, wisdom and values in its study of peace. SAIPR would also have a strong
research focus on reconciliation, as this is an extremely important and relatively under-researched area
which is strongly linked to the religious/cultural dimensions of peace building.
