Marguerite Peeters was born in 1963 in New-York, USA. After a stay in Ukraine between 1991 and 1993, she specialized as a journalist and researcher in the post-Cold War construction of a new global consensus under the aegis of the United Nations. In 1995 she created IIS, an information service producing analytical reports on political and cultural developments at the level of global governance. Her studies have focussed in a special way on the new global language that has emerged in the 1990s, the postmodern ethic it expresses and its globally normative character. Often getting the information from the very experts who forged the new language, she authored more than three hundred IIS reports to date.
In 2003, M. Peeters founded the Institute for Intercultural Dialogue Dynamics, which produces educational materials and discernment tools on the key-concepts, values and operational mechanisms of globalization. She authored several studies and books translated into several languages, including “Hijacking democracy, the power shift to the unelected”, “The new global ethic, challenges for the Church”, “The globalization of the western cultural revolution – Key-concepts, operational mechanisms”, “The gender revolution”, “Twenty years of sexual and reproductive health and rights in Africa: challenges for the Church” and “The citizen and the person – Rebellion and reconciliation”.
Marguerite Peeters conducts seminars and holds lectures for a wide variety of audiences in Europe, the Middle East, North America, and Africa especially. She teaches a course on global ethics in several universities and institutes, which have so far included the Pontifical University Urbaniana, several affiliates of the Pontifical Lateran University and the Catholic University of Congo. She is a consultor for the Pontifical Council for Culture and for the Pontifical Council for the Laity.
