The goals of Medical Peace Work are to prevent violence, and promote peace, human rights and human security.

The cases are intended to be used as the basis for group work and class discussion in formal and informal educational settings for health professionals and their students. Teaching notes are available for teachers and trainers. Medical Peace Work also offers online teaching resources for medical peace education.

The case method

Pioneered in the early 20th Century at Harvard University, the case method is the preferred teaching tool at most of the world's leading business schools. Cases recount real-life business or management situations that present class participants with a dilemma or uncertain outcome. A process of discussion and analysis, guided by a skilled case teacher, leads class to deeper insights into complex issues and their resolution. Find out more

About Medical Peace Work (MPW)

Medical Peace Work

The Medical Peace Work (MPW) partnership is built on a European network of medical peace organisations and teaching institutions that gathered during the Hague Appeal for Peace Conference in 1999 and the IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) World Congress in Paris in 2000. The Partnership represents a transitional cooperation between a number of stakeholders including medical peace practitioners, peace and health researchers, teaching institutions, and the final users of the project’s outcomes.
