Who We Are

Dominicans for Justice and Peace (Order of Preachers) is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation representing the Dominican Order to the United Nations. The organisation was created in 1998 by the Order of Preachers (Dominicans, OP) as a permanent presence at the United Nations. It is dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights and is animated by the desire to provide greater capacity to the Dominicans around the world to advocate for human rights at the UN to the benefit of target populations in need at the local level.

Overall, Dominicans for Justice and Peace is dedicated to deepen the engagement of all Dominicans in finding peaceful solutions to conflicts, addressing the root causes of various contemporary challenges, promoting and protecting the human rights of all and bringing justice to people whose rights have been violated.
