To build peace, we must dislodge the economic and political foundations of war. IPS believes that a just foreign policy is based on human rights, international law, and diplomacy over military intervention.
The idea that we have to either support military action and sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, or “do nothing,” is a false binary.
Economic sanctions are a weapon of war, not an alternative to war.
The spending priorities Biden listed in his State of the Union speech don’t match reality. It’s time to invest in the people of this country.

The region faces a choice between top-down “green growth” and bottom-up efforts to transform economies.
The international movement for Palestinian rights laid the ground for declarations by Amnesty International and other human rights organizations. We must follow up.
