The Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace (GHFP Research Institute) was founded in 1995 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).


Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace Research Institute 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.


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.
