The Center for Citizen Peacebuilding conducts research, advances education and organizes action to improve and expand citizen peacebuilding in the United States and around the world. The center hosts lectures and conferences involving prominent citizen peacebuilders, including Nobel Peace Prize Laureates; trains local and international peacebuilding practitioners, including gang intervention workers; and facilitates peacebuilding efforts in conflict zones.
Since 1999, the Center for Citizen Peacebuilding has been working with ordinary citizens around the world to explore paths to peace and reconciliation, and share what we have learned.
We conduct and support research through fellowships, conferences and hands-on participation in citizen peacebuilding.
We offer education through the University of California, Irvine and training in conflict resolution and nonviolence for diverse organizations, from gang prevention and intervention to international peacebuilding.
We encourage and support citizen peacebuilding in conflict zones around the globe.
By integrating all three aspects, we promote knowledge about positive role models and foster constructive change.
The UCI Center for Citizen Peacebuilding is a member of the Alliance for Peacebuilding.
