The Information Portal "War and Peace" of the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) and BICC (Bonn International Center for Conversion) has been offering a wealth of facts and figures on war and peace for five years. The first three modules are now also available in English. They offer information on "War and violent conflict", "Peace and demobilization" and "Military capacities and means".

The German Information Portal "War and Peace" offers a broad and descriptive access to important facts and figures on war and peace, particularly to students and teachers alike, the media but also to anyone who is politically interested. The English version now offers this information to even more target groups. On the one hand, it provides information and knowledge to English-speaking citizens of Germany, including refugees. On the other, this online service is now also available to international users.

All information is primarily prepared as maps that are accompanied by information graphics and texts that take an in-depth look at the topics themselves. Detailed country portraits and data tables offer further background information.

The following modules are available in English:

All modules are brought up-to-date on a regular basis. The data presented in the portal are based on common data sets from peace and conflict research, supplemented by further global data sets from reliable, independent sources, such as UN institutions, which contain data on as many countries as possible.
