Abstract: Peace Research Institute - Dundas, administratively separate from the Canadian Peace Research Institute since 1976, conducts research to identify obstacles impending mankind's search for peace, focusing on international trade, disarmament and the United Nations.
The Institute publishes Peace Research Abstracts Journal, a bibliography with summaries, of publications and speeches relating to those topics which bear on peace research; Peace Research Review, a monograph series which explores a topic in depth, often as a literature survey; a series of books which analyze U.N. voting patterns; and books and papers of other original research.
The Abstracts Journal has published more than 125,000 abstracts of papers, articles and books related to the peace/war field. Some reviews are original research; each Review includes a large section of references. The Review has 400 international subscribers; subscriptions are $14.00 fir six issues.
The Institute will host the world-wide conference of the International Peace Research Association. Peace Research Institute - Dundas maintains close co-operation with similar institutes in other countries and the directors are often invited to participate in conferences abroad. The function of the Institute is more to provide scientifically analyzed data in the field of peace research than to enjoin people to be in favour of peace.
