TRANSCEND is a global PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT network of cooperating
individuals and institutions concerned with conflict transformation
by peaceful means and reducing structural and cultural violence. It
works through action, education, dissemination, and research. The
purpose of TPU, the educational arm of TRANSCEND, is to prepare
participants with the knowledge and skills required for undertaking
professional PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT work, emphasizing the creative
transformation of conflicts through transcendence of the
contradictions underlying conflicts. "TRANSCEND is engaged in
conflict transformation by peaceful means to bring about a more
peaceful world by using action, education, networking and research
to handle conflicts with creativity, nonviolence and empathy." (Johan
Galtung). TRANSCEND means to "Go Beyond".
