Centre for European Perspective understands peace and security as one of the main prerequisites for development, democracy and rule of law.

Our work covers law enforcement capacity building (assistance to the Western Balkan and other countries in strengthening rule of law, security and law enforcement institutions; financial investigations; fight against organized crime, corruption) & civilian crisis management under the auspices of the Peace & Security Programme.

EUCTI – European Union’s Civilian Training Initiative 

EUCTI aims to improve the life of people living in the conflict-affected societies by enhancing the quality of training provided to individuals joining the crisis management missions – either civilian crisis management missions or missions consisting of civilian, police and military elements (integrated missions).

EUCTG – EU Civilian Training Group 

EU Civilian Training Group (EUCTG) was established as a configuration of Committee for Civilian Aspects of Crisis Management (CIVCOM) for the systematic process of managing CSDP training requirements for CSDP civilian training. The CIVCOM is composed of representatives of EU member states, while the EUCTG needs support from the National Training Experts (NTE) and the EU Civilian Coordination for Training (CCT).

CEP has volunteered as EU Civilian Coordinator for Training (CCT) for two topics, namely:

  • Communication, behavioural and cultural skills
  • Mentoring, monitoring and advising (MMA) – as support to the Italian Carabinieri

EUPCST – European Union Police and Civilian Services Training

EUPCST is a three-year project (2019 – 2022) which aims at enabling staff in civilian crisis management and stabilization actions to work in a more efficient, effective, and sustainable manner in order to achieve their mandates.

POTC – Peace Operations Training Centre


POTC – Peace Operations Training Centre will be implementing certified trainings and education for military, police officers, civilian personnel of the ministries and other civilian experts that can be deployed to peacekeeping operations and missions within the UN, EU, NATO and OSCE.
