The Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace (GHFP Research Institute) was founded in 1993 by co-founders Simon Xavier Guerrand-Hermès, a board member of Hermès International, and Sharif Istvan Horthy, the grandson of Admiral Horthy (Regent of Hungary 1920-1944).
GHFP Research Institute
The GHFP’s research focuses on investigating key areas of human concern. The priority of our research is to identify good questions that can lead to changes in people’s perceptions and practices. We collaborate with others to think the yet-to-be-thought.
The GHFP seeks to understand key concepts in peace, dialogue and human flourishing. By mapping out these conceptual landscapes always in terms of human-centred values, we hope to develop new ideas for cultivating a wider systemic transformation at many levels.
The GHFP’s events focus on creating opportunities for new forms of encounter and dialogue. We believe that such interactions can enhance mutual understanding and respect between people and harmony in societies. These dialogue events aim to generate new understanding and awareness that can contribute to resolving to some of the issues faced by people in the world of today.
The GHFP’s publications are intended to articulate, share and disseminate our research understandings, learnings from discussions, and insights from projects. These monographs and edited collections below are some recent examples illustrating the fruits of our research, dialogue and project work. We believe that GHFP publications can create a greater platform for encounter and exchange of ideas.
