Office of Rome

As regards Italy, on 6 November 2015 the governing bodies of the University for Peace (UPEACE) signed with the President Prof. Eng. Gianni Cara – already responsible for Europe of the “World Organization for Peace” – the protocol of understanding with which the establishment of a delegated office in Italy was made official, destined to join the others which have already been operating for some time, according to customary and treaty law, in the Netherlands, Japan, the Philippines, Chile and Ethiopia. The International University for Peace – Rome was therefore identified by University for Peace Costa Rica as the body responsible for establishing the university headquarters in Rome. The Italian University was also created with the aim of providing a highly qualified and advanced educational offering, such as to extend, with the related study and research activities, to Eastern and Southern Europe, the Mediterranean area, the Middle East and to equatorial and sub-Saharan Africa. In execution of the task received, a special body was set up, appropriately named “International University for Peace – Rome”; Furthermore, 2 offices have been established – a central office in Rome and an operational office in Tunis, in a very innovative area, which is a real business accelerator.
