The Peace Report is the joint report of the German peace research institutes
- Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC)
- Leibniz-Institut Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung (PRIF/HSFK)
- Institut für Friedensforschung und Sicherheitspolitik an der Universität Hamburg (IFSH)

and has been published since 1987. Scholars from various disciplines examine international conflicts from a strategic peace perspective and give clear policy recommendations.
Since 2018, the Peace Report has been published in a new format and design, with a new chapter structure and even more pointed recommendations. The articles are divided into five thematic sections: "Armed Conflicts", "Sustainable Peace", "Arms Dynamics", "Institutional Peacekeeping" and "Transnational Security Risks". In the chapter "Focus" each year a topic of the current state of conflicts in the world is examined in more detail.
