University of Pisa – Interdisciplinary Center “Sciences for Peace”

The “Interdisciplinary Center Sciences for Peace“ (CISP) is a University Education and Research Center, submitted to a special regulation issued according to a Decree approved by the Dean on 1st August 2013.

The Center, founded originally (1998) as an Interdepartmental Center, is a point of reference for professors and researchers of the University of Pisa who wish to perform research, educational teaching and professional development activities  – or more generally a cultural promotion – connected to the building of a “positive peace.“ The overall aim of the center itself is not only the building of a positive peace in the sense of the realistic/ illusory absence of war, but also the challenge of working for social justice, of managing conflicts in a non-violent way, of refusing the violent instruments and of condemning war in any case.
