Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice

Through education, research and peacemaking activities, the Institute offers programs that advance scholarship and practice in conflict resolution and human rights. The Institute for Peace & Justice at the University of San Diego draws upon Catholic social teaching that sees peace as inseparable from justice and acts to prevent and resolve conflicts that threaten local, national and international peace.

History:
The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ) at the University of San Diego was founded in 2000 with a generous gift from San Diego philanthropist Joan B. Kroc, who stipulated that the Institute not only "talk about peace, but make peace."

Beginning with a Dedicatory Conference in 2001, which was attended by former Presidents Jimmy Carter of the United States and Oscar Arias Sanchez of Costa Rica, along with many other peace-builders and representatives from four conflict-affected states, the IPJ has worked to bring together the powerful and the marginalized to build strong peacebuilding coalitions.
