Institute Policies


The Hiroshima Peace Institute (HPI) was established on April 1, 1998, as a research institute affiliated with Hiroshima City University.

Located in the city that experienced the first atomic bombing in human history, the institute aims to develop into an international research center that can, through academic research, contribute towards nuclear abolition, the resolution of global issues, the realization of sustainable global peace, and the development of local communities.

It is also our aim to create ties with other peace research institutions, both within and outside the country, for the purpose of developing peace studies. At the same time, we widely disseminate research outcomes to society through public lectures, symposiums, publications and other means.
