The Center for Democracy and Social Peace Studies

The Center for Democracy and Social Peace Studies was established to become an active promoter of social peace in Egypt and the region, and to help raise people’s awareness of democracy and democratic processes. The center’s core activity is to conduct research and provide expert training in democracy and non-violent conflict management, resolution and peace building.

Through its multidisciplinary approach to teaching and research, CDSPS aims at increasing people’s ability to understand and support social peace and democratic transformation while, simultaneously, building individuals’ capacity to foster dialogue and reconciliation. It also aims at engaging in strategic partnerships with institutions, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental organizations involved in social peace and democracy studies worldwide.
