The GHfP Institute carries forward a number of major international research programmes previously developed at the Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace and is embedded in an excellent research and teaching environment and learning community of the UWTSD. The Institute seeks to engage in cutting-edge research aimed at new understanding, innovation, policy change, and social transformation. It will offer masters and doctoral courses and professional programmes in collective healing, public health and well-being, social justice, deep dialogue, positive peace, human-centred education, and community regeneration.

The Institute focuses on the following:

  • Fostering collective healing (including healing the wounds from past atrocities and the wounds of our planet), enriching community regeneration, and advancing social justice and global solidarity;
  • Nurturing youth leadership, inspiring youth transformative actions and providing professional development opportunities to facilitators of collective healing and community regeneration
  • Harmonising holistic human well-being with our planet’s flourishing
  • Supporting the development of governance processes that are values-based, dialogue-centred, peaceful in process, and well-being sensitive
  • Encouraging educational transformation and inspiring a culture of caring in educational institutions;
  • Creating spaces for deep encounter, deep listening, and deep dialogue for engendering peacefulness and greater harmony amongst all that is.
