Central Organization for a Durable Peace
The Hague
Motivation: The organization was founded by 30 leading peace activists in 1915 in order to adjust and reorganize international peace work during war. Both neutral and belligerent countries were represented, and it advocated non-annexation, free trade, arbitration and disarmament. The organization had close connections to the Nederlandsche Anti-Oorlog Raad. The two had a division of labor where the former took care of the practical and popular work, while the latter focussed on the scientific work.
