The commissions

The International Coalition has initiated several projects, which are led by specialized Commissions composed by representatives of the member associations:

  • The Education for Peace and Non-violence Commission is headed by Christian Renoux (French Coalition for the Decade). Colette Petit (Pax Christi International and French Coalition), Matthew Whitten (IFOR) and Bernhard Nolz (Kooperation für den Frieden) are part of it. This Commission’s members are analysing the means for the promotion of an education for peace and non-violence on an international scale. They aim at co-ordinating the national initiatives dealing with such themes.


  • The International Campaign Commission is presided by Alain Richard (Franciscain International). The Commission’s members are David Hay-Edie, Christian Renoux (French Coalition), Soha Bayoumi (International Coalition) and Estelle Ribier (International Coalition). They have elaborated an international declaration on violence-free education and education for peace and non-violence. This Commission is now about to launch an international campaign for the adoption of this declaration.


  • The Artistic Commission is in charge of the study of an itinerant artistic event (exposition, theatre…) promoting the Decade. One of its objectives is to make a four- language CD in cooperation with singers from each region of the world. Regine Kappeler (Austrian Coalition) moderates this Commission.


  • The Animation-Communication Commission is made of Geneviève Colas (Caritas Internationalis), Marcello Palumbo (Caritas Internationalis), Christian Renoux (French Coalition), Patrick Nguema Edou (Réseau Foi, Culture et Education) and Hans Ulrich Gerber (World Council of Churches). The aim of this Commission is to propose a list of animation, development and communication projects to the International Committee.

Other commissions such as the Civilian Intervention for Peace Commission are about to be created.
