About the Organization for World Peace Research division: 

The Organization for World Peace Research (OWPR) documents and writes reports on various world issues that threaten world peace with a focus on issues that require international cooperation, arguing for peaceful, non-combative solutions to complex issues. In this regard, the OWPR seeks to reroute the general thinking that humanitarian crises requires armed military interventions, and move this way of thinking towards strategic problem solving. The OWPR conducts research on current events related to international armed conflict, civil war, as well as the military response from the international community.
