IMPACT-SE is the only interdisciplinary research organization that monitors and analyses schoolbooks and curricula across the world with an eye to determining their compliance with international standards on peace and tolerance, as derived directly from UNESCO declarations and resolutions.

A pioneer in the field of textbook analysis, IMPACT-SE endeavors to present a clear picture of how different countries instruct and educate their youth with regard to different religions, societies, cultures, democratic values and the "other." It is dedicated to peacemaking between peoples and nations by encouraging acceptance of the “other” and rejection of violent conflict resolution.

The Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education -- formerly referred to as the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace (CMIP) -- is a registered non-profit, non-partisan research institute. It is run by a group of volunteers in the Middle East and Europe, and it is governed by a General Assembly, a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and an International Advisory Board.
