The mission of the INMP is to contribute to world peace by means of promoting and enhancing the work of museums for peace.
The network aims to reach this mission by:
- creating links between peace museums, related institutions and individuals worldwide
- organising international conferences and other activities
- releasing publications in the form of books, articles and newsletters
- encouraging the exchange of information, material and exhibitions
- setting up joint exhibitions to spread know-how
- encouraging the creation of more peace museums in other parts of the world
The INMP seeks to finance its goals with annual fees, donations, yields from activities and funding.
