-- Peace conferences nevertheless created a general appreciation of international cooperation, the principle of international arbitration was established, and some specific organizations were created, e.g.the Red Cross in 1864 and the International Olympic Committee in 1894.
But all attempts failed, and each World War brought an end to most pre-war conferences and peace organizations.
Thus Oxford played a unique role in the Peace of 1814, and its two modest 1814 peace monuments -- see below -- have quietly marked this momentous event for over 200 years.
This puts the two Oxford monuments among the earliest examples of "peace monuments" anywhere & makes them contemporaries of the Stoodley Pike Monument in West Yorkshire (qv). Inscribed: "'PEACE was proclaimd In the CITY of OXFORD JUNE 1814.'

-- Since World War II, there has been a plethora of so-called peace conferences, congresses, and festivals (and of official government conferences), but very few privately organized peace conferences have been able to sustain themselves for more than a few years.
One exception is the Pugwash Conference on Science & World Affairs which began in 1957 and still meets annually.
