An international organisation that focuses on promoting peacebuilding and human rights around the world.

The International Peace Commission (IPC) works based on upholding the values of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, therefore their main projects focus on human rights with the aims of peacebuilding and disarmament, social development, education, environmental security, development and democratisation.

The commission has produced reports on peace in South Asia and problems in Pakistan. The report on Pakistan highlights the issues of women's rights, open drug markets, corrupt welfare organisations and general human rights violations. In November 2009, IPC organised a peace walk and seminar against terrorism in Karachi, Pakistan. The events attracted people from all walks of life, particularly young people.

IPC works in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Earth Corps and International Action Network on Small Arms.
