Alexander Häntzschel is proud to have been accepted as an individual member of the International Peace Bureau.
The International Peace Bureau (IPB) is one of the world’s oldest and most important international peace federations. The organization was founded in 1891. In 1910, it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for acting “as a link between the peace societies of the various countries”.
Since 1992, the IPB awards the Seán MacBride Peace Prize to a person or organisation that has done outstanding work for peace, disarmament and/or human rights. It is named after Seán MacBride, an international lawyer and politician, who – among many other achievements – co-founded Amnesty International, drafted the constitution of the Organisation of African Unity and outlined a New World Information Order for UNESCO.
Alexander Haentzschel is proud to support and to recommend the International Peace Bureau as he shares the vision of a world without war and demands the disarmament for sustainable development. Furthermore, he wants to remember Seán MacBride and to remind on his ideas of a more just and more efficient flow of news. Based and inspired by the UNESCO report “Many Voices, One World“, Alexander Haentzschel published the article “Should Singapore rejoin the UNESCO?” in 2004.
