IWM Institute for the Public Understanding of War and Conflict

Our mission is to further public understanding of war and conflict by helping people make sense of today by having a deeper understanding of the connections between past conflict and the contemporary world. The IWM Institute’s broad range of activities, which cover 1914 to the present day, will combine Imperial War Museums own expertise with insights from related sectors and will engage the public through a number of unique partnerships and challenging themes.

The IWM Institute works with a network of IWM Associates, which includes experts from the fields of arts and culture, policy, academia and the charity sector. IWM Associates use their own informed perspectives to support the development of fresh and creative approaches to public engagement with war and conflict.
