PAX is the result of the merger of Pax Christi Nederland and the Interkerkelijk Vredesberaad (IKV). These two peace organizations have both worked for peace since World War II and the 1960s respectively. And they did that more and more together. In 2006 they became one, from 2014 under the name PAX.
After 70 years PAX is still very much needed. Worldwide there are people trying to escape from repression and violence who deserve help. We work together with hundreds of ardent volunteers. We work from the Netherlands, Brussels (EU), New York (UN) and together with our local partners in conflict areas. We turn our years of experience into action in order to achieve change.

All of us at PAX are responsible for respecting our values and for observing a high standard of integrity, wherever we work. We at PAX also all share the responsibility for a safe work environment for employees and safe cooperation with our partner organisations.
PAX applies the classification system of the Collective Labor Agreement for Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PKN) for the remuneration of all employees. We follow the same scale for the Board of Directors. Members of the Supervisory Board, IKV Board, Members Council Pax Christi and our volunteers do not receive any remuneration for their work.
