History testifies to the fact that mass violence is as old as human existence. Almost every episode of mass violence has been followed by efforts aimed at preventing its reoccurrence, yet we have miserably failed in achieving that.

Gujarat Vidyapith, Ahmadabad (www.gujratvidyapith.org)

Gujarat Vidyapith was founded by Mahatma Gandhi on 18th October, 1920. Gujarat Vidyapith is a deemed university since 1963. Gujarat Vidyapith is funded by the U. G. C. (University Grants Commission) for higher education programs. It was started as Rashtriya Vidyapith (National Institute of University Education) and was the wake of the Non-cooperative Movement. Mahatma Gandhi remained its life-long Kulpati (Chancellor).

Peace Research Centre

In October 1969, Gujarat Vidyapith organized a seminar on ‘Science, Education and Non-violence’ with support from the University Grants Commission (UGC), Indian National Commission for UNESCO, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), and Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Eminent Scientists and Scholars from USSR, USA, Canada, Australia and India attended. Dr. Solandt, Chairperson of the Canadian Science Council, Dr. Robinorich of the USSR, and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, Chairperson of AEC India, were some of the distinguished participants. The then Deputy Director General of UNESCO had addressed the Seminar.

As a follow-up of the seminar the Vidyapith instituted a project for a study and research programme for peace in November 1971. The then Vice Chancellor, Professor Ramlal Parikh pioneered it and became the founder Director. UNESCO provided support for library and fellowships. UGC also provided some support. Eventually, it was turned into the Peace Research Centre and named after Shri Jamnalal Bajaj, a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi. The Centre became consistent with one of the objectives of the Gujarat Vidyapith, which states that the main function of the Vidyapith is to educate youth into becoming empowered, cultured, and committed volunteers, bearing sound character to undertake reconstruction of the nation based on Truth (Satya) and Non-violence (Ahimsa).
