Through it’s International Peace and Development Training Centre (IPDTC) based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, PATRIR has trained thousands of people in peacebuilding, from communities to conflict parties, senior political leadership and staff and country missions of the UN, the OSCE, Commonwealth Secretariat and other intergovernmental organizations.
PATRIR works on violence prevention, mediation and peace processes and post-war recovery, also working outside Romania when requested by Governments and other conflict parties.
IPDTC is the first institution from Romania to attain EDU accreditation.
This will no doubt be welcoming news to the Neurosurgeon, Dr. Roxana Mittler-Matica, who is currently the only Romanian to feature on the EDU Assessment Committee.
The Secretary General of EDU described the decision of the selected Assessment Committee members as;
"A positive and crucial step towards promoting and highlighting the work and abilities of IPDTC and PATRIR" H.E. Irving Le-Vance
