The International Centre of Nonviolence 

Advancing transformative change towards peaceful societies
in Africa and beyond 


What we do 

  • Undergraduate teaching in the university’s General Education programme and the training of university staff in transformative learning
  • Postgraduate teaching at Master’s and PhD levels and assisting other African universities to set up peace programmes
  • Community engagement, particularly the Durban Innovative Leadership Programme and the School Engagement Project

Our commitments 

We are committed to building just societies, to ethical and collaborative practices and to inclusivity.

Our theory of change  

Our teaching and research aim to help societies achieve sustained peace. This requires that they are transformational in their methods and outcomes, with an immediate impact on the lives of those involved.
