Founded by 3rd World Peace Congress, with the title Bureau international permanent de la paix (BIPP), as central office and executive organ of H-XH0224 - Union internationale des sociétés de la paix (UISP), which was set up at the same time. Commenced activities provisionally on 1 Dec 1891, Bern (Switzerland). Statutes adopted at 4th World Peace Congress, 23 Aug 1892, Bern; registered in accordance with Swiss Civil Code, 22 Sep 1893. UISP ceased to exist during World War I. IPB office transferred to Geneva (Switzerland) in 1924. Activities suspended during World War II.
