What we do:
The IPA is actively working to prevent conflict; helping parties in conflict make peace; peacekeeping; and eradicating the global poverty and creating the conditions to allow peace to hold and flourish. These activities often overlap and should reinforce one another, to be effective. The IPA Social Council has the primary responsibility for international peace and security. The General Assembly and the Superior-General play major, important, and complementary roles, along with other IPA offices and bodies.
