Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue

Boston Research Center

The Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue (ICPLD), located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A., is an international peace institute founded in 1993 by Daisaku Ikeda. Inspired by the SGI’s philosophy of value creation, the BRC works to build cultures of peace through dialogue and education. Its programs and publications focus on education for global citizenship, women’s leadership for peace, and the philosophy and practice of community-building, locally and globally. The overarching goal of these programs is to contribute to a shift in U.S. culture
from isolation, violence and war to interconnectedness, nonviolence and peace.

To build a stronger sense of global community, ICPLD inaugurated a forum for intercultural dialogue in the fall of 2004. The first forum aimed at finding common ground between the American Transcendentalists and Eastern wisdom, and the second, in 2005, explored international responses to the poetry and spirit of Walt Whitman. The ICPLD's publications now include Educating Citizens for Global Awarenessas well as earlier titles promoting nonviolence and examining the Earth Charter.

So far, multi-author books produced by the center have been used as supplemental texts in more than 300 college and university courses in the United States.
