PATRIR is awarded the 2017 Luxembourg international peace prize for  ‘outstanding peace organisation’

The Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania (PATRIR) – a member of the PeaceTraining.EU consortium – was awarded the Luxembourg International Peace Prize for ‘Outstanding Peace Organisation’ on June 30th in the historic European Parliament in Luxembourg. The Luxembourg International Peace Prize recognised PATRIR” for its dedication to peacebuilding through practical engagements and support for peace processes in conflict situations around the world. Since its founding in 2001 PATRIR has been a pioneering organisation developing the field of peacebuilding. Its principal commitment to empowering the ownership and capacities of local, national and international peace actors – from grassroots community organisations to national governments, conflict parties, and international organisations and agencies such as the United Nations, OSCE, Commonwealth Secretariat and more – has helped to strengthen and improve the impact, quality and effectiveness of peacebuilding efforts. From Iraq to Moldova-Transdniestria, Northern Ireland, Nigeria, Nepal, Libya, Mexico, Syria, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Cyprus and elsewhere, PATRIR has contributed to advancements in peace and stability, violence and war prevention, and post-war peace consolidation, recovery and healing. From its work as one of the leading providers of training, professional development and capacity building in peacebuilding and prevention through the Institute’s International Peace and Development Training Centre (IPDTC) to its involvement in peace operations through the Department of Peace Operations, and its work to introduce peace education into schools nationally in Romania and internationally, PATRIR is truly an ‘outstanding peace organisation.’”
