IPIS vzw - International Peace Information Service
IPIS is an independent research institute devoted to peace and development in sub-Saharan Africa. Our thematic focus concerns three core themes: arms trade, exploitation of natural resources, and business & human rights. Drawing from its expertise, IPIS also engages in capacity building and technical training for NGOs, governments and other stakeholders in our focal region.

Although we often do research projects for campaigning organisations, we do not engage in campaigning and lobbying activities, this to ensure the unbiased nature of our reporting.
