Asia Pacific Peace Studies Institute
Holy Names University
The Asia Pacific Peace Studies Institute (APPSI) seeks to promote “positive peace” – that is, peace with security as well as justice and sustainability – in Oakland and communities throughout Asia, Oceania and the Americas. We do so through a variety of activities: intercultural dialogue and collaborative research, student leadership training and various other educational initiatives, social entrepreneurship and civic engagement.
