The Zhou Enlai Peace Institute:
recognizing the life and achievements
of a hero of modern China
Zhou Enlai is one of the great figures of modern history. He made vital contributions to peace, for China, America and the world. As Premier and Foreign Minister of China from 1949 to 1976, Zhou Enlai opened the face of China to the world and established a top priority: friendship with all people.
Only a few people have made transforming, positive contributions to the world in the past century. Without them, key events in history might have unfolded differently. Among these giants are Mahatma Gandhi, who brought freedom to India with non-violence; Nelson Mandela, who liberated South Africa with reconciliation; and Martin Luther King, who set the highest standard for equality in America.
But there is no comparable figure from modern China, the world’s largest nation, who has achieved the highest level of international heroic recognition and respect.
The Zhou Enlai Peace Institute will change that perception.
