Centre for Peace Studies

Centre for Peace Studies (Croatian abbreviation: CMS; English abbreviation: CPS) is a non-governmental and non-profit organization promoting non-violence and social change through education, research and activism. CPS grew out of various forms of direct peace-building in western Slavonia (Volunteers’ Project Pakrac, 1993-1997). It was founded in 1996 in Pakrac and formally registered in Zagreb the following year. CPS operates through three compatible programs: Asylum, Integration and Human Security, Peace Education and Non-violence Affirmation, and Combating Inequalities. In our work in all programs we combine several approaches - research, education, public actions, and work on public policies, advocacy and public campaigns


We believe the only way forward in a complex world is by joining forces to build a future where business and profit work in support of people and the planet, taking collaborative action for a better world. In Croatia we envision a space for impact entrepreneurship and innovation for the generation of leaders who move economy and society forward. As a member of the largest network for positive change, Impact Hub Zagreb is placed in the best position to continue its mission of empowering, enabling and connecting the current and future generation of changemakers for a better society.
