The Peace Institute
NEW ERA PEACE RESEARCH INSTITUTE (NEPRI) is a project of New Era Educational and Charitable Support Foundation dedicated to research into conflicts, armaments, arms control and disarmament. Established in 2012, the NEPRI provides data, analysis and recommendations to policymakers, researchers, media and the interested public. The Institute investigates and puts forward proposals for early warning mechanisms, violence prevention and how controls and strategies can be put in place for resolving conflicts. We analyze the causes of violent conflicts and develop strategies for their peaceful transformation. We conduct research, trainings and make periodic publications that will contribute to the deeper understanding, acceptance and practice of peace.
is to contribute to the development of models, theories and practices of peacebuilding which facilitate the transformation of deeply rooted and resistant cultures of violence into cultures of peace in Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the world.
Periodically, the New Era Peace Research Institute (NEPRI) convenes networks of Peace Builders, scholars, peace educators, researchers and social advocates who are committed to the transformation of social policies, practices and perspectives through transcultural learning. The Institute also examines issues of freedom and justice, WMD, terrorism, “human security” and citizen-to-citizen processes of relationship- and community-building. We seek to create and open communication channels between policymakers and local NGOs, CSOs promoting human security from the bottom-up through conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
