It involved several initiatives and projects, notably the ?Strengthening Civil Peace? initiative between 2012 and 2014, which entailed a series of roundtable discussions and seminars on violence and armed conflicts, the memory of the civil war and dealing with the past. Among targeted groups were intellectuals, religious and political leaders, NGOs, businessmen, and journalists. Every session dealt with a specific topic ranging from the role of media in strengthening civil peace to the role of religious leaders and other key actors. The project produced several reports and publications.
