The U.S. Institute of Peace was created by the U.S. Congress in 1984 to enhance the U.S. capacity to prevent, manage and resolve international conflicts through nonviolent means. USIP works to build peace by engaging directly in conflict zones around the world, and by providing analysis, education, training and resources to those working for peace.
USIP’s headquarters is a living monument to peace, which supports the Institute’s work in several important ways, as the tour will explain. It was designed by internationally-renowned Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie and was funded by a public-private partnership, with the majority of funding coming from Congress. The building has a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for implementing sustainable and cost-effective design.
