Center for Peacebuilding

Our way is peace

As part of a worldwide movement to celebrate the International Day of Peace (September 21st), we wanted to raise more awareness of the need for peacebuilding and interreligious dialogue activities in our local community, across Bosnia and Herzegovina, and internationally. This goal became reality through the implementation of annual International Peace Week events.

The first Peace Week took place in 2010. Since then it has been a public, week-long event where we concentrate most of the topics that our work focuses on and reach a wide number of people. On average around 300 people have participated in the weeklong programme every year. Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds, including youth, local professionals, disadvantaged groups, local authorities, religious leaders, local and international peacebuilding, and primary school pupils and teachers.

Throughout the week we  organise concerts, film screenings, and inter-religious meetings. To further our mission of peace and tolerance, we also host  workshops and seminars on topics like peacebuilding, dialogue, and reconciliation.

About Us

Today, the Center for Peacebuilding (CIM) stands on the former frontlines of the war, acting as a bridge between a past that few can currently discuss and a future where open dialogue can rehumanize the enemy and dispel the misinformation that acts as the seeds for hatred.
