About Us

FoR is an international movement of people who commit themselves to active nonviolence as a way of life and as a means of personal, social, economic and political transformation. Based in the Christian tradition, we were founded in 1914, and have permanent representation at the UN.

The movement was founded in 1914 in response to the horrors of war in Europe. Seeing the need for healing and reconciliation in the world, the founders of the Fellowship formulated a vision of the human community based upon the belief that love and non-violence in action have the power to transform unjust political, economic and social structures.
In its 100 years, the Fellowship has had 6 Nobel Peace Prize winners. FoR is a membership organisation, and we welcome new members: join us.

The Fellowship of Reconciliation in England is based at Peace House in Oxford. Currently, we support community conflict transformation projects overseas, educate about nonviolent conflict resolution, and campaign against the use of armed drones. All this takes place from our home in Oxford: Peace House.
