Overview of the Institute
The Institute for Peace Science at Hiroshima University was established on July 8, 1975 as a campus-wide facility for research into peace science, as well as the collection of materials related to this field. The Institute was the first academic research institution in Japan dedicated to peace studies, and remains the sole research institute of its kind at a national university. The Institute aims to collect materials and conduct research focused on peace science.
In order to achieve that objective, the Institute carries out the following three key activities:
･Research related to peace science, with a particular focus on bringing together scholars from both within and outside the university to promote and organize peace science research
･The collection and collation of literary materials and data related to peace science
･The provision of information and research results related to peace science
