About us

The Centro per la Cooperazione Internazionale– CCI is a non-profit, independent organisation engaged in the research, analysis, information, training, and promotion of knowledge on issues of international cooperation, European affairs, peace, and human rights to give substance to the commitments of the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the United Nations for sustainable development.

The CCI promotes the coordination of initiatives and actors operating in international cooperation, enhances the specificities of local experiences, and fosters their international projection, paying particular attention to the regions of priority interest for Trentino (Balkans, Mediterranean, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America).

Situating its activity in a complex, interdependent society, the CCI works to place rights, sustainability, and equity at the centre of practices and policies defined with the participation of institutions, civil society, the media, the academic community, and the world of labour and business.

The CCI includes two operating units: CSG - Competenze per la società globale and OBCT - Osservatorio Balcani Caucaso Transeuropa and was established in 2017 from the union of CFSI (founded in 2008) and OBCT (created in 2000). 

Partners: Autonomous Province of Trento, Municipalities of Trento and Rovereto, Peace Bell Foundation and University of Trento, in partnership with the OECD Trento Centre for local development, Trentino Forum for Peace and Human Rights.
