The Civil Peace Service

We don´t shy away from conflict
The Civil Peace Service is a programme aimed at preventing violence and promoting peace in crisis zones and conflict regions. It aims to build a world in which conflicts are resolved without resorting to violence.  

Nine German peace and development organizations run the CPS together with local partners. CPS is funded by the German Government. CPS experts support people on the ground in their commitment for dialogue, human rights and peace on a long-term basis. Currently, about 380 international CPS experts are active in about 45 countries.


 The Civil Peace Service provides materials for peace work, political education and teaching that deal with the topic of peace.
