Purpose of the organization: The International Network of Museums for Peace is a worldwide network of peace museums that share in the same desire to build a global culture of peace. It also includes peace gardens and other peace related sites, centres and institutions which are involved in public peace education through exhibitions, documentation and similar activities. The objective of the INMP is to contribute to world peace by means of promoting and enhancing the work of museums for peace. The network aims to reach this objective by organising international conferences and other activities, publications (books, articles and newsletters), its website and by creating links between peace museums, related institutions and individuals worldwide to encourage the exchange of information, material, exhibitions, set up joint exhibitions to spread know-how, etc. It also intends to encourage the creation of more peace museums in other parts of the world. The INMP seeks to finance its goals with annual fees, donations, yields from activities and funding.
