32 years ago, CEDS was created in order to enable diplomats working in Paris, to find a place where they can meet, improve and update their knowledge.
Over years, the specialized programmes were enlarged beyond the circle of diplomats, and welcomed international civil servants and military attachés from more than 100 nationalities.
CEDS is honoured to become a partner of the War College since 2007.
The exceptional specialized programmes CEDS provides are correlated to high quality of our team of university professors, and experts among the ranks of senior military officers, and renowned diplomats and international civil servants.
CEDS is beginning its fourth decade with a new partnership with UNESCO signed on October 2017 and is confident in its ability to promote peace studies.
