The SGI is an actively engaged with the United Nations as a non-governmental organization in consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

SGI President Daisaku Ikeda has issued a peace proposal each year since 1983, exploring the interrelation between core Buddhist concepts and the diverse challenges facing global society in the effort to realize peace and human security.

These proposals are sent to many people and institutions across the world, including various UN agencies and officials, and have come to gain increased notice and consideration among peace scholars and concerned individuals.
