The Peace and Justice Project is founded by Jeremy Corbyn.
Jeremy Corbyn served as Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition from 2015 to 2020, and has represented Islington North since 1983. He is a lifelong campaigner for peace and justice, holding roles in the Anti-Apartheid Movement, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, and Stop the War Coalition.
As Labour leader he oversaw the development of a comprehensive programme to rebuild the UK economy, transfer wealth and power from the few to the many, tackle poverty and division, put Britain at the forefront of confronting the climate emergency and pursue a peace and rights-based foreign policy.
Jeremy received the Gandhi International Peace Award in 2013 and the Seán MacBride Peace Prize in 2017.
