Research + Action
on vital issues concerning human security
We critically examine the destructive role of nuclear weapons, climate change, and institutions that endanger common security, and the positive role played by nonviolent approaches to conflict resolution.
We lament the passing of Chandler Davis, one of the founders of Science for Peace in 1981. Chandler was a very special man, with a history of rock-bottom integrity, courage, and steadfast determination as well as perspicacity, wide knowledge, and the gift of wit. He had a very distinguished career as a mathematician and also was recognized as a science fiction writer. (See Wikipedia).
This brief video highlights why so many of us in the peace movement held Chandler in such high regard.

40 Years of Making a Difference
Science for Peace is organization consisting of scientists, students and the general public that work together to promote peace worldwide. Founded by a distinguished group of concerned scientists at the University of Toronto, Science for Peace has positively impacted the major institutions of our society for over forty years, from contributing to the creation of the University of Toronto's peace studies program and mentoring students to chairing working groups and providing expert witnesses to the House of Commons on matters concerning human security. The organization's workshops, lectures, and Franz Blumenfeld Peace Education Fund are notable instances of the organization's perseverance.
