Biographical history

The Peach Research Centre was established at the Australian National University in 1984. The proposal to set up a peace research institute came from a group of academics, public servants, representatives of voluntary organisations and the Labor government in 1983 as part of a wider policy of Australia's commitment to disarmament.
