The Institute for Global Policy (IGP) is a research and policy institute dedicated to the promotion of human security, international justice, the prevention of armed conflict and the protection of civilians. Through an emphasis on the democratization of international and regional organizations and the development and global application of international law, the Institute works to find pragmatic and action-based solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

IGP’s work primarily involves:

   • research

   • publications

   • policy and program development

   • media awareness

   • the development of strong global civil society networks

The Institute was founded in 1983 by the World Federalist Movement, with which it remains affiliated. It is co-located in The Hague and New York.
