The International Peace Institute is an independent, international not-for-profit think tank. They are dedicated to promoting the prevention and resolution of conflicts between and within states by strengthening international peace and security institutions.

To achieve its purpose, IPI employs a mix of policy research, convening, publishing and outreach.

Given the nature of their work, it is no surprise they have a strong interest in C-IED related areas such as disarmament, conflict prevention, peacekeeping and terrorism. It is under these branches that the IPI undertake research into IEDs.

The research and publications by the IPI on IEDs and C-IED work has informed further C-IED efforts, such as by the UN.

Publications on C-IED include: “Counter-IED Technology in UN Peacekeeping: Expanding Capability and Mitigating Risks” and “Safety and Security Challenges in UN Peace Operations”.
