CPS – Civil Peace Service
The Civil Peace Service (CPS) is a program aimed at preventing violence and promoting peace in crisis zones and conflict regions. It strives to build a world in which conflicts are resolved without resorting to violence.
Nine German peace and development organisations run the CPS in cooperation with local partners. The CPS is funded by the German Government.
CPS experts support people on the ground in their commitment for dialogue, human rights and peace on a long-term basis. Currently, more than 350 international CPS experts are active in 45 countries.
