Udostępnij strone

The Collegium Civitas Centre for Diplomacy and Negotiation (CDN) is established in response to the increasing unpredictability of the international environment and the changing architecture of security and international relations.

The Centre pursues its objectives by conducting expert, analytical, educational and opinion-forming activities. It provides a venue for debate between experts, officials, politicians and NGO leaders.

The Centre responds to the need to analyse new arenas of disputes between states and to support increased diplomatic action related to them. It engages in the development of long-term strategies and plans in negotiation processes, as well as providing rapid analyses and conducting consultations between parties to international disputes.

In its initiatives, the Centre is guided by the fundamental values of respect for freedom, international law, in particular human rights, and the pursuit of peaceful relations in the international environment.

The Centre aims to integrate the community of leaders and experts working in the field of international politics and to promote the enlargement of NATO and the EU as the foundations of security in Europe.

The Director of Centre for Diplomacy and Negotiation is Mr. Marcin Bużański.

The Centre bases its activities on 4 initiatives:

  • Modelling and analysis of international negotiation processes;
  • Analysis of international conflicts;
