The Information Centre on Militarisation (IMI) e.V. has been working since 1996 in a wide range of peace policy issues with a strong focus on Germany and its role in the world.
As a non-profit organization, it is our goal to provide our analysis and information to contribute to international understanding. We see ourselves as a mediator between the peace movement and the scientific management of conflicts and conflict situations through science.

For further questions please sent us an email.

Some of our texts are also available in English (see below). We try to enlarge the availability of English texts constantly.
