Conference In Burundi Larissa

Along with its affiliated institutions and other partners, CPN regularly supports different kinds of convenings to advance the study of peacebuilding, to enable networking among peacemaking scholars and practitioners from around the world, and to support and accompany universities, institutions, and organizations working to foster peace. These international and regional gatherings allow peacebuilders to forge solidarity and share best practices, help build capacity for universities and other institutions, and provide space for dialogue about the development of a theology of peacebuilding.​​​​​​
