Hide Profile

The Society for the Promotion of Universal and Permanent Peace, also known as the London Peace Society, was founded June 14, 1816; first meeting was held at the home of William Allen, June 6, 1814; members were primarily Protestant, especially Quaker. Although its official platform was based on an absolutist pacifist stance, its members included peace workers who did not accept the full pacifist position. The Society declined in influence after the Boer War; in World War I it played no perceptible role in the antiwar movement. By 1930 it had taken the name of International Peace Society, having become incorporated with the International Christian Peace Fellowship; date the society ceased is unknown.
