The International Conference for Nonviolence and Democracy (CINOD) works to foster peaceful democratic change in Ivory Coast and Africa by organising seminars, conferences and publications. It carries out research on democracy, studying the factors and policies which lead to democratic consolidation in Ivory Coast.

CINOD is dedicated to defending the principle of non-violence. It helps promote this message and its research by organising interdisciplinary debates on peace issues and taking a critical view of the issues surrounding sustainable peacebuilding in West Africa. Several debates, conferences and seminars have been held since CINOD's inception, with participants from academia, the media, law, national Ivorian politicians and local peacebuilders.

Such workshops have been organised on:

  • Violence in academia, what remedy?
  • The responsibility of youth in reconstruction and the consolidation of a national unity
  • Solidarity, fraternity and patriotism in the search for peace pane
  • Coups d'état, armed conflict and the problem of democracy in Africa
  • Understanding the Violence of war in Côte d'Ivoire
  • Elections and legitimacy of State power

The Martin Luther King Center for Peace and Social Justice

In order to boost its action and obtain concrete results in terms of peaceful social change, a new center for peace and social justice was created in 2006 where similar debates are hosted, young people are trained in conflict management and the principle of nonviolence is fostered.
