The Center for Conflict Studies is pleased to announce the launch of the Peacebuilders Fellowship - a summer fellowship program for graduate students in the United States. This first round of Peacebuilder Fellows will begin their fellowship in summer 2014.
In keeping with the mission of the Center, the goal of the Peacebuilders Fellowship is to give a voice to the voiceless. Fellows will spend around two months in a conflict zone and collect stories of people who have experienced conflict. The hope is that the individual stories will give face to a "distant" conflict, providing empirical knowledge which in turn will empower people to act.
For the year 2014, the Center will be focusing on Water conflicts and the Peacebuilders Fellowship will emphasize the gathering of stories of individuals who are stakeholders in a water conflict.
