Since its inception in 2013, the Centre of International Peace & Stability (CIPS) has emerged as a world class institute offering short courses and graduate degrees (MS and PhD) in peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and peace and conflict studies.

Our areas of research remains focused on international, regional and internal conflicts. We draw our inspiration from the founder of nation Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s guiding principle that Pakistan seeks “peace within and peace without” and the preamble of the UN Charter that the purpose of the organization is to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war,” and maintain “international peace and security.”

In order to expand our academic horizon, we hold seminars and webinars, and organize roundtable conferences, in collaboration with other international and local think tanks and universities. We also run a highly successful summer program on international peace and security.

Over the years we have been able to develop international and local linkages to keep us in line with the emerging trends in peacekeeping, peace building and conflict resolution. And have concluded several MOUs with local and international universities and think tanks.

It is our endeavor to turn out graduates who are well equipped to pursue careers in the government and the private sector, where their education can be put to good use.
