Historical

Earlier referred to as the Pacifist Research Commission, the Pacifist Research Bureau was formed in March 1942 by a representative group of religious pacifists from churches and leading pacifist organizations. It based its work upon the philosophy of pacifism, the creation of a world brotherhood, and sacrificial good will as the only means of overcoming evil. The Bureau studied current problems and reported its findings in pamphlet form, hoping to make a solid contribution based on scientific research.
