Institute for Development and Peace


The Institute for Development and Peace ("Institut für Entwicklung und Frieden" INEF) is operated by the Department of Philosophy and Social Sciences of the Gerhard Mercator University as a research institution providing scientific support for the Foundation for Development and Peace ("Stiftung für Entwicklung und Frieden" SEF). The Institute was founded in 1990 on the basis of a cooperation agreement between the Foundation for Development and Peace, initiated by the former chancellor Willy Brandt and the University of Duisburg. The goals of the Foundation and the Institute are: to investigate the interrelationships between development and peace, in particular in the Third World; to elucidate global interdependencies linking security, economy and ecology; to stimulate the national and international dialogue on global interdependencies and trends; to generate impulses for political action based on global responsibility in North and South, East and West; to provide public information and education on global trends and global governance.
