CPD is dedicated towards research, dialogue and advocacy works in the field of policy studies, with relation to conflict resolution, peace building, human rights, gender equality, and other areas relevant to the sustenance of democracy. As such, CPD publishes an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, bi-annual journal Peaceworks, with support from ICSSR.

Peaceworks is essentially a knowledge sharing platform for academicians, practitioners, researchers and social analysts. Peaceworks invites contributions in the form of original articles, short communication, critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays. The journal follows the policy of blind peer review and accepts papers round the year.
