An Introduction:
Somali Institute of Peace Research (SIPR) collects and engages peace studies in researches concerning the conditions for peaceful relations between Somali leaders, other neighboring nations, groups and individuals.

Our peace research endeavors are to put forward proposals for how the causes of Somali conflict can be recognized as early as possible, for how violence can be prevented and how political control can be put in place for solving those conflicts before they become disastrous. It is our hope that our peace researches and publications will play major role in answering these questions, and our proposals will be used by politicians at the national and local level, by religious leaders, political parties and the media.
