The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation was established in 1963. The foundation aims to continue the work of the philosopher and activist Bertrand Russell in the areas of peace, social justice, and human rights, with a specific focus on the dangers of nuclear war. Its director was Ken Coates. Its general secretary, until 1969, was Ralph Schoenman.

Spokesman Books is the publishing imprint of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation[1] and publishes books on politics, peace and disarmament, and history. The Spokesman is the journal of the BRPF, which reached its 100th issue in August 2008.
