Centre for Conflict Resolution Europe

The Centre for Conflict Resolution Europe (CCRE) is a partner of the Center for Conflict Resolution from La Sierra University in the United States and functions under the auspices of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Ireland (SDACI). The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a denomination with a long history of philanthropic service and concern for peace.

The Centre draws on the rich resources of an Adventist tradition that encourages honesty, respect, intelligence, creativity, and openness to peaceful conflict resolution. In particular, the Centre is responding to the Seventh-day Adventist Call for Peace issued by the denomination on April 18, 2002.


The Centre's Goal

The Centre’s goal is to help you resolve actual or potential conflicts.

While the Centre’s programmes and personnel can provide crucial support as you attempt to reduce the risks posed by threatened or actual litigation, the Centre is committed to equipping individuals, groups, and organisations to deal successfully with conflicts of all kinds.


The Centre's Mission is to:


Foster Research

Foster interdisciplinary research and programs related to conflict management and peer abuse.


Offer Courses

Offer courses to prepare individuals to resolve conflicts and prevent peer abuse in business, government, the not-for-profit sector, and their faith communities.

Help Identify

Help people and organisations identify best practices for conflict resolution and peer abuse that will strengthen vital relationships.

Assist to Resolve

Assist business, governmental, not-for-profit and religious organisations in resolving conflicts and preventing peer abuse through mediation, negotiation and facilitation using collaborative, non-adversarial processes and peer abuse prevention training through private for-fee casework as well as pro bono programs, negotiation and advocacy consultation, organisational systems design services, and strategic communication consulting.

Whatever the outcome of the process of resolving a particular conflict, the Centre believes the results for all parties can consistently include satisfaction with the process and an appreciation for training and utilising individuals who serve as neutrals to help individuals, groups and organisations address their particular circumstances and needs.
