Permanent Peace Movement (PPM) is an independent Lebanese, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) founded in 1989 as the height of the Lebanese Civil war by a group of young university students unified by their common version of the future and their aversion to war. They considered that the peaceful means for conflict resolution are the most useful of all, and once exhausted, one should resort to non-violent means and never to violence.
The PPM is a member of several regional and international networks active in the field of Peace building, violence aversion and conflict prevention. L' organisation 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 and - Promoting children' s rights and stopping the use of children in armed conflicts, etc.
The organisation works on building peace in the local, national and international communities through spreading the culture of peace and transforming/preventing conflicts. it also strives to empower individuals and institutions enabling them to play their respective roles in this field.
