Center for Peace Education (CPE)

The PX or Chi Rho symbolizes Christ, the great Teacher of peace, justice and love. The dove is a universal peace symbol. The circle is our world and Mother Earth, the common home of all humans, whose unity with the Earth and with each other is imperative for a life of peace. 

MISSION

The Center’s mission is to help advance a culture of peace through education.

A culture of peace is a set of values, modes of behavior and ways of life that reflects respect for life and for human dignity, rejects violence in all its forms, prevents violent conflicts by tackling their root causes, and recognizes the importance of cooperation, tolerance and dialogue.

OBJECTIVES

  • To institutionalize and strengthen the peace education thrust of Miriam College through faculty training, curriculum development and student development programs.

  The Center for Peace Education also acts as the secretariat for the Women Engaged in Action on 1325 (WE Act 1325) network. This network, composed of 34 women, human rights and peace organizations nationwide, focuses on pushing forward the agenda on women, peace and security. The main objective of the network is to aid in the implementation and monitoring of the Philippine National Action Plan (P-NAP) on UNSCR 1325 and 1820.

WE Act 1325 receives support from the Royal Norwegian Embassy and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Australian Government in the conduct of its programs and projects. Currently the network through its members is undertaking Women’s Projects for Peace in various conflict-affected areas, engaging with the security sector on women, peace and security, collaborating with Local Government Units in the localization of the P-NAP on UNSCR 1325 and 1820, and conducting Women Working for Normalization capacity-building workshops in key areas in Mindanao.
