The European Centre for Conflict Prevention "is a non-governmental organisation that promotes effective conflict prevention and peacebuilding strategies, and actively supports and connects people working for peace worldwide." [1]

"Since its inception in 1997, the European Centre for Conflict Prevention (ECCP) has developed in new strategic directions and adapted, in accordance with its mandate, to fill crucial needs in the conflict prevention and peacebuilding community. Due to strong relationships with civil society organisations working on confl ict prevention in regions around the world built through our Searching for Peace and People Building Peace programmes, the work of the ECCP is increasingly global in reach.
"Our global work really began in earnest in 2003 when the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict was established with ECCP as initiator and International Secretariat. The Global Partnership fi lls a crucial need in the conflict prevention community by providing a universal platform for our collective work, and for engaging in capacity building, knowledge sharing and joint action across the regions."
