The Catholic Peacebuilding Network (CPN) is a voluntary network of practitioners and academics, clergy and laity, which seeks to enhance the study and practice of Catholic peacebuilding in areas torn by conflict. It is comprised of 23 affiliated organizations, but also works with many other individual and institutional partners worldwide. As a Catholic network, CPN believes that authentic and effective peacebuilding involves dialogue and collaboration with those of other religious traditions and all those committed to building a more just and peaceful world.

This site is hosted by the Secretariat of CPN, which is housed at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies in the Keough School of Global Affairs.
