Centre for Peace Studies (CPS) is an NGO promoting non-violence and social change through education, public policy, research and activism. CPS grew out of various forms of direct peace-building in western Slavonia (Volunteers’ Project Pakrac, 1993-1997), was registered in Zagreb in 1997. CPS believes that by building a network of educated citizens who have peace-building skills and apply the values of peacebuilding in everyday life, we contribute to the making of an active and influential civil society. Through encouraging active and/or interested citizens we want to be a driving force in promoting a lasting and positive peace in the region. Through public events and actions, we want to influence the public, the media and government structures to encourage them to engage in the processes of dealing with the past and the articulation of peace-building policies. CPS operates through three compatible programs: • Asylum, Integration and Human Security; • Peace Education and Nonviolence Affirmation; • Combating Inequality.
