CIVITAS International, a worldwide non-governmental organization for civic education, aims to strengthen effective education for informed and responsible citizenship in new and established democracies around the world. Civic education involves the study of constitutions; the rule of law and the operations of public institutions; the study of electoral processes; instruction in the values and attitudes of good citizenship; the development of the skills of governance and politics; issues of human rights and intergroup relations; and conflict resolution. CIVITAS International is composed of individuals, non-governmental associations, and governmental institutions from many countries as well as international organizations.
CIVITAS works to maintain a worldwide network, using all available resources, including computer networking, international exchange and various other means, to bring the knowledge, skill and experience of education for democracy to bear on the momentous tasks that confront today's democracies.
