Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue (NCPD) is a knowledge center and meeting point for dialogue and conflict transformation. The center provides training courses and facilitates dialogue.
NCPD promotes peace, human rights, dialogue and reconciliation through training courses, documentation and sharing knowledge based on field experiences. The center conducts peace and dialogue work both in Norway and internationally, and has been active in Western Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Poland, and more. In Norway, the center cooperates with schools, municipalities, cultural and religious organizations, museums, colleges and universities.
By facilitating dialogue in divided communities, NCPD helps build bridges across ethnic, cultural, political and social divides. Experience proves that targeted efforts are required over time to develop strategies and tools for preventing, managing and transforming conflicts. The center is located at the Nansen Academy in Lillehammer, Norway.
The Nansen Center merged in 2010, when the Nansen Dialogue and the Norwegian Peace Center became one unit. Read about the team here.
The center is implementing a variety of projects focused on dialogue, reconciliation in divided communities, transforming conflicts and peace building around the world. More information here.
