Enhancing the study and practice of Catholic peacebuilding

In our current, second phase, CPN is focused on supporting the capacity of the Church to build peace in Central Africa, Colombia and the Philippines. This is an initiative of global solidarity where sharing of insights and expertise will be fostered in numerous directions. The Church has a great deal of expertise already in peacebuilding. Those involved in capacity building as resource persons will no doubt learn as much, or more so, than those struggling with justice and peace each day in these parts of the world.

CPN initiated its work, however, by hosting conferences designed to inform efforts to engage in providing tangible support. Since its founding, CPN has held major conferences in Central Africa, Colombia and the Philippines. Another conference was held at the United Nations. Two additional conferences were held at University of Notre Dame. Documents from those conferences are posted on the right.
