The Institute for Peace Science Hiroshima University (IPSHU) was established on 8 July 1975 as an intramural university-wide facility for the collection of data and research into peace science. At that time the Institute for Peace Science was the first academic research body of its kind in Japan, and still remains today the only peace research institute among Japan's national universities.
In order to realize its objectives of data collection and research into peace science, the Institute for Peace Science has placed emphasis upon the following three activities:
- The promotion of national and international cooperation between researchers
and research institutions relating to peace science
- The accumulation and processing of data relating to peace science
- The dissemination of information and research output relating to peace
As of 1st April 2018 the "Institute for Peace Science, Hiroshima
University" has become "The Center for Peace, Hiroshima University".
This change reflecta the enhanced capability we have acquired and the
central role that we aim to play in facilitating research and education
in Peace Studies within and beyond the sphere of HiroshimaUniversity.
