CITY FOR THE CULTURES OF PEACE

THE DYNAMICS OF CREATIVITY IN THE SERVICE OF PEACE

WHO ARE WE? Our Objectives:
The City for the Cultures of Peace is an international, interdisciplinary research network founded by a group of scholars, scientists, and artists as a response to the violence and wars overshadowing the twentieth century and the start of the new millennium. Through cultural and academic activities, its members work to build bridges between different cultures and to contribute to conflict resolution by studying the political, social, economic, and cultural dimensions of peace as well as the forces which endanger it: violent nationalism, racism, and fanaticism. Since the inception of this research network over a decade ago, its teams have implemented interdisciplinary research and training programs, cultural activities, and social initiatives in many different countries, focusing on five goal areas: peace studies and conflict prevention; marginalization and exclusion; genocide studies; interdisciplinarity; children and youth at risk.
