Mission Statement

Fribourg Peace Forum
Founding document

On the occasion of the constitutive assembly of 9th October 2009 at the University of Fribourg, the assembled conveners representing different fields of society and coming from various socio-cultural backgrounds agreed to the founding of a new body called FRIBOURG PEACE FORUM (FPForum) and whose motto is “promoting peace and ethics at home, in society and around the world”.

Mission Statement:

The FPForum shall be a pluridisciplinary body, which examines contemporary problems in politics and society, and provides practical and alternative solutions accordingly.  The forum shall function with an ethical perspective enriched by a wide diversity of religions, cultures and experiences. It seeks to further the larger global effort to promote peace building as well as the respect of human rights and dignity, transcending societal divisions.  It also seeks to network and dialogue with political stakeholders and others.

In the spirit of the global network of Ambassadors for Peace of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), the FPForum will involve individuals, communities and associations for peace, thus empowering civil society to become an active partner of governments and governmental institutions from the local to the international spheres and from the Swiss to the UN levels.

Program of action:

Holding of events in Fribourg parallel to the Davos World Economic Forum.

Establishing a think tank to provide policy alternatives for decision-making bodies.

Inspiring and promoting action on the grass-root level in line with the mission of the forum

The president of Fribourg Peace Forum,

Professor Emeritus Dr. Adrian Holderegger
