“Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

We live in a world with increasing fear, polarization and conflict. Our society face several major challenges such as increasing political polarization, environmental change, migration, and the flourishing of xenophobia, racism, and extreme views that threaten democratic governance based on inherent human values and rights.

The King’s Institute aims to unite and reconcile human relations through dialogue and non-violent methods.

Our projects combine theory and practice. We work with topics such as youth and exclusion, mediation and dialogue work, social justice and human trafficking. The King Institute offers several accredited courses in Conflict Transformation.

Our vision is to be an agent of change with a positive and constructive influence in society, both locally and globally. Inspired by the work of Coretta and Martin Luther King, we work with a value base that promotes tolerance, inclusion and compassion.
