INNOVATIONS FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT
Innovations for Peace and Development (IPD) was established in January 2013 to produce and disseminate rigorous, policy relevant research to promote innovations in global peace and development.
UT students are at the heart of our work, and thus our mission is also to provide research, internship and fellowship opportunities for undergraduates and graduate students from across UT to empower them to engage in scholarship and practice that will make a real difference in the world.
We also work directly with international organizations, developing country governments, universities and civil society groups to generate and test new ideas that will change the way peace and development are pursued, evaluated and sustained.
