The Center's slogan "Knowledge as Action; Action as Change" drives the 2015 Peacebuilders Fellowship. The goal is learn first hand from the people who are experiencing conflict and from those working on conflict and then document the information and lessons learned in a way that it creates action points for those engaged in similar conflicts.
In summer 2015 the program will travel to Honduras. Our project in Honduras is with the Catholic Relief Services and through them with their local partners. Fellows in Honduras are expected to conduct research, document local approaches and challenges in dealing with water conflicts. This material will provide vital information to the Center in developing a manual for peacebuilders working on water conflicts.
Two fellows will be selected for the program in Honduras. Mandatory pre-departure trainings (online) will be conducted in the third week of May 2014. Fellows are expected to be in the field for 8 to 10 weeks anytime in the period between May 25 and August 15. Upon return, Fellows will work with the Center to finalize reports and document stories from the ground.
