The International Catalan Institute for Peace – ICIP

The International Catalan Institute for Peace (ICIP) is a research, dissemination, and action entity created by the Parliament of Catalonia in 2007 to promote the culture of peace in Catalan society and internationally, and to make Catalonia an active agent of peace in the world. ICIP acts as the Technical Secretariat of the Commission in Europe, to articulate and facilitate the work of the Truth Commission with the victims living in Europe, within the framework of the implementation of the 2016 Peace Accord. ICIP offers technical and logistical support to the activities organised by the Commission in Europe, coordinates the activities of the working groups established in different European countries (Nodos), and provides methodological support to the process of clarification, including the collection of victims’ testimonials, and social dialogue in Europe.
