The International Catalan Institute for Peace (ICIP) is an institution of research, dissemination and action created by the Parliament of Catalonia in 2007 with the aim of promoting peace culture both in Catalan society and the international arena, and providing Catalonia with an active role as an agent of peace in the world.


Grounded in the principles of democracy, justice, equality and equity in relations between individuals, peoples, cultures, nations and states, ICIP works for human security, the prevention and peaceful transformation of conflicts and social tensions, the strengthening of peace and coexistence, and the defense of human rights.


ICIP is a public institution but at the same time it is independent, with its own legal personality.  It aims to support public administrations, the academic world and civil society, and reports to Parliament, the Government and the citizenry as a whole.
