PEACE & SECURITY SYMPOSIUMS
In partnership with premier centers of higher education, IPSI facilitates month-long intensive trainings where world leaders personally convey their knowledge and expertise to carefully-selected participants. Participants graduate with practical skills that enable them to positively confront violent conflict; they also gain a global network of peers and experts committed to help them achieve their ambitious goals.

PEACE & SECURITY LABS
|One the most unique aspects of IPSI Symposiums is the Peace & Security Labs. A select number of innovative student projects sparked by IPSI Peace & Security Symposiums are supported by IPSI.
