Bertrand Russell Peace FoundationRussell1

Welcome to the website of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation.  Launched in 1963, the Foundation was established to carry forward Russell's work for peace, human rights and social justice. More than fifty years later, our work continues.

Here, you will also find information about our journal, The Spokesman, and links to our publications website Spokesman Books and our Online Bookshop


On this page we are developing a global network of links with other organisations dedicated to Peace, Nuclear Disarmament, and Human Rights.

IBBY Palestine Website
The aim of our PBBY website is to connect effectively with our members, friends and friends to be.

We believe that the dissemination of information about our activities, outcomes, and difficulties will promote our work. We hope to widen our network of friends who have been increasing since we joined IBBY in 2003; thus enriching international solidarity and multicultural exchange.

We aim to give a louder voice to our children, who like to share their dreams, sufferings and aspirations; share their creativity through their writings and illustrations; to briefly highlight the development of children’s literature and children’s books in Palestine.

International Year of Chemistry Exhibition
Many of the exhibits of the Museum of the Hellenic Nobel Collection are related to the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry (photographs, patents, stamps, medals, manuscripts, letters and much more). For this reason, we have been invited by Greece’s National Research Foundation – which will be celebrating the UN-designated Year of Chemistry in 2011 – to present the internationally reputed and renowned scientists who have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in a major exhibition the Foundation will be staging.

Cambridge Solidarity with Iraq (CASI) provides information about the humanitarian situation in Iraq and its context. It aims to raise awareness of the effects on Iraq of the sanctions which were in place until May 2003, and previously campaigned on humanitarian grounds for the lifting of non-military sanctions. CASI does not support or have ties to the government of Iraq.

COME CLEAN! - The WMD Awareness Programme is dedicated to providing trustworthy and up to date information on Weapons of Mass Destruction world wide.

Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space -Stop the Militarization of Space

Network for Peace was set up to continue the work of the National Peace Council, one of the oldest peace organisations in the UK. We aim to act as a contact point for queries about peace organisations, actions, vigils, and demonstrations, especially in times of crisis or emergency.

TRANSCEND is a global PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT network of cooperating individuals and institutions concerned with conflict transformation by peaceful means and reducing structural violence. It works through action, education, dissemination, and research.

Oxford Research Group (ORG) is an independent non-governmental organisation and registered charity, which works together with others to promote a more sustainable approach to security for the UK and the world.

Iraq Body Count is an ongoing human security project which maintains and updates the world’s largest public database of violent civilian deaths during and since the 2003 invasion. The count encompasses non-combatants killed by military or paramilitary action and the breakdown in civil security following the invasion.

Stop the War Coalition - The aim of the Coalition is very simple: to stop the war currently declared by the United States and its allies against ‘terrorism’. We condemn the attacks on New York and we feel the greatest compassion for those who lost their life on 11th September. But any war will simply add to the numbers of innocent dead, cause untold suffering, political and economic instability on a global scale, increase racism and result in attacks on civil liberties. The aims of the campaign are best expressed in the name Stop the War Coalition.

Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) campaigns for the reduction and ultimate abolition of the international arms trade and the UK's role in it as a leading arms exporter. CAAT also encourages policies to re-orientate the UK economy away from military industry towards civil production.

Iraq Occupation Focus was formed in the spring of 2004 by a group of activists from across the anti-war movement who were spurred into action by the revelations of human rights abuses coming out of Iraq, the growing evidence of plunder by US corporations and the appalling death toll inflicted by the occupying military forces. We felt it was vital to step up the campaign to end the occupation completely by informing people in Britain about the realities of the occupation, helping to mobilise people against it.

Western States Legal Foundation (WSLF) recognizes that nuclear weapons affect the environment, the economy, the role of violence in society, and democracy itself. It seeks to abolish nuclear weapons, compel open public environmental review of nuclear technologies, and ensure appropriate management of nuclear waste. Grounded in nonviolence and rooted in both international and environmental law, the principle guiding WSLF's activities is democratization of decision making affecting nuclear weapons and related technologies.

Parliamentary Network for Nuclear Disarmament - A non-partisan forum for Parliamentarians, nationally and internationally, to share resources and information, develop co-operative strategies and engage in nuclear disarmament issues, initiatives and arenas.

The Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research - TFF is a vision and an experiment in applied peace research and global networking. Its work in the Balkans is particularly strong, and its commentaries on international affairs are independent and informative.

Mahatma Gandhi Research and Media Service - Gandhi Serve Foundation's web site offers photos, footage, audio, books, information, writings online, video online, research service, consultancy and rare materials on Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi.
Gandhi Serve Stiftung - Mahatma Gandhi Forschungs - und Mediendienst.

The Gandhi Information Center has made contacts all over the world and contributes to an international network, studying the origins of nonviolent, active resistance, as developed and lived by Gandhi.

Yorkshire CND - A comprehensive and informative site. Yorkshire is home to both the Menwith Hill US spy centre and the Fylingdale radar station.

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament UK (CND) campaigns non-violently to rid the world of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and to create genuine security for future generations.

Scottish CND has members across Scotland. We are one of the largest and longest running peace organisations in Scotland campaigning against nuclear weapons and for a nuclear-free world.

The Scottish Left Review is a bi-monthly website magazine providing a focal point of thought and discussion for the Scottish Left. Such a forum is much needed while the free reign of market forces is not only tolerated but actively promoted as the only agency that can ensure economic prosperity.
