CPJ pursues its goal to promote global peace and social justice through four pillars that focus its work: research, education, training and advocacy. Through these four pillars, CPJ intends to develop coherent and comprehensive plans to prevent atrocities and mobilise local and regional actors. Since its establishment in 2017, the Centre has been committed to identifying and promoting sustainable and inclusive solutions to a wide range of global concerns and issues, including fragility, conflict and violence.
