Who We Are
The Kurdish Peace Institute (KPI) is an independent nonpartisan research and policy institute based in Washington, D.C. Our aim is to educate policy makers and the wider public on the Kurdish people and the region of Kurdistan. We are dedicated to ensuring a non-derivative presence of the Kurds in policy circles that have all too often disregarded collective Kurdish agency.

What We Do
Through educational programs, publications, and public research, we work to advance awareness of the Kurdish people and their aspirations and seek to provide insight into how these aspirations interact with regional and global stakeholders.
We will share perspectives on Kurdish political and military actors that analyze and engage with these entities in their own right, and explain how the Kurdish question impacts challenges of regional and global importance.
We will bring together academics, practitioners, and other experts from Kurdistan and around the world in order to build this new understanding, setting the stage for a dialogue that has not yet been had in Washington.
We look forward to filling an important space with this project, and to contributing to key discussions on pressing issues at an important time for the United States and the region alike.
