The Permanent Peace Movement (PPM) was founded in 1986 (Register Nr; 86/A.D. 24/5/1986), at the height of the Lebanese civil war, by a group of university students. Unified by their aversion to violence and common vision of a brighter, more peaceful future, they set the cornerstone for what has grown into an experienced organization that promotes peace throughout the MENA region. Permanent Peace Movement (PPM) works in coordination with the various components of the community in the following fields: - Resolving/preventing conflicts through researches and trainings, and intervening where necessary and possible - Controlling armament, possession and misuse of small arms - Promoting transitional justice, facing the past and consolidating reconciliation in the post-war society - Human rights and human security.
