The mission of the Center for Civic Education Pakistan (CCE) is to empower individuals by promoting values of responsible citizenship and principles of democracy in Pakistan.
CCE focuses on young people and their role in the betterment of the country, and in this regard the organisation has not only organised various events but also published relevant material, such as a report on 'Youth’s Review of Counter Extremism Policy in Pakistan'.
The centre organised a National Essay Writing Contest in 2010 on the topic: 'Role of youth for a peaceful and tolerant society in Pakistan'. The competition received over 120 contributions from young people across the country.
In 2009, CCE organised a roundtable conference on 'Extremism in Pakistan: the role of state and non-state actors, 1979-2009'. The event was organised in collaboration with Quaid-i-Azam University and the Higher Education Commission. In the same year, the centre also organised an exhibition of art by young people promoting a peaceful society in Lahore. For the exhibition the young people from various institutions across the country participated to express their vision of peace through painting.
