In order to achieve its objetives CITpax uses two Fields of activity: 1) New Forms of Diplomacy and Peace-building Activities and 2) Capacity-building, Analysis and Research for Peace-building; and works through four programmes: three regional (Middle East and Mediterranean, Latin America and Eurasia); and one thematic (Crisis Management and Peacebuilding).
In contexts where official channels are insufficient or blocked, CITpax facilitates the transformation of conflicts by establishing contacts and dialogue to generate confidence among the parties involved, to build bridges between their positions, unblock communication paths, find alternatives to conflicts, and thus make concrete proposals that may contribute to peacebuilding processes.
In order to contribute to the improvement of mediation capacities, as well as to the prevention, transformation and resolution of conflicts, and so as to enrich positions and actions of the parties in conflict and those of the international community towards peace-building processes, CITpax works in cooperation with governments and public institutions as well as with civil society organisations.
The programme aims to contribute to the development of frameworks of cooperation in the Middle East as a means of overcoming the fragmented realities and providing new processes for the region.
The programme acts through the promotion of dialogue to build up consensus between conflicted parties. It identifies problematic issues in tense areas in the field and does political research on questions that could have a negative effect on democracy in Latin America.
This programme carries out activities to follow-up on negotiation processes and to support peace treaties in Europe and Asia, as well as to supervise the implementation of agreements.
This thematic programme contributes with practical initiatives to analyzing and designing innovative tools, strategies and means for conflict prevention.
