Catholic Peacebuilding Network

Enhancing the study and practice of Catholic peacebuilding

Conference Summary

From May 17-19, 2004, invited participants from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the United States gathered at the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Continuing Education for a consultation of the Catholic Peacebuilding Network (CPN). Hosted by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, the consultation was dedicated to sharing experiences, analysis, and insights regarding peacebuilding initiatives in Colombia, the Philippines, and Rwanda, as well as stories of peace and conflict from across Africa. The consultation was structured as a series of presentations and discussions concerning the efforts of Catholics and their partners in peacebuilding. It was aimed at helping CPN to discern the most appropriate ways to contribute to peace practices as it grows and develops.
