The Conference of European Churches was founded in 1959 as a peacebuilding organisation following the death and destruction of World War II. We continue to honour these earliest roots through an ongoing commitment to peacebuilding and reconciliation. Through various activities we seek to build bridges, provide an opportunity for encounter, and work for social justice.

In this context, following document was issued:

The Role of Religion in Conflict, Peacebuilding and Reconciliation – A study document of CEC Thematic Reference Group on Peacebuilding and Reconciliation, presented at the 2018 Novi Sad General Assembly.
