About Us

Peace Institute Potsdam is an international, non-sectarian, independent, non-profit institute that puts people first and emphasizes authenticity as a critical foundation for peacebuilding work.

Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

Václav Havel

We stand for an authentic and deep honest values where people are the center of all things to serve the human dignity in conformity with the essential values of the UN and the ECG

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right- doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”


We are convinced that sustainable support in the peace process is only possible without self-interest and with a complete focus on the people. The global community has already tried a lot. We want to take a new approach and involve not only individuals at the grassroots level, but at all tracks, especially at the highest level of leadership.

“Be the Change You Want to See in the World!
