Welcome to the Institute for InterGroup Understanding

This website is dedicated to InterGroup Peace and InterGroup Understanding. It explains why we have more than 200 interethnic and InterGroup conflicts in the world today, and helps people understand how to reduce conflicts and live in Peace. This website offers books, essays, insights, reflections, paradigms, poetry, and thought pieces about InterGroup Peace.

Peace is possible. Peace is needed. We should all work together to create a Peace Movement now.
