DIALOGUE & ADVANCED CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION SCHOOL FOR THE SOUTH CAUCASUS AND ITS NEIGHBORHOOD
If you are a social scientist, peacebuilder, or an active young person looking to develop the skills to work with conflict constructively and engage with your peers from across the South Caucasus, consider applying to the Imagine Center’s Dialogue and Advanced Conflict Transformation School. The Dialogue and Summer School brings together youth from all parts of the South Caucasus and its neighborhood for an intensive week of transnational network building during which you will develop your professional capacity in conflict resolution and transformation.
The Dialogue & Advanced Conflict Transformation School will take place in Georgia. Dates: July 23-29, 2022. Prior to and following the dialogue, selected participants will be invited to a few online lectures and workshops on Conflict Resolution & Transformation, Nationalism & Media, and more.
Following the Dialogue & Summer School in July, the participants are invited to work with their peers across the conflict-divides to build and implement collaborative projects. The most active participants will have the opportunity to apply for a semester-long fully-funded certificate program in Mediation and Conflict resolution at the Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego. The program will be held partially in-person and partially online.
The language of the program is English.
Interested candidates should submit a resume and a motivation letter to [email protected]. In your motivation letter, please discuss:
- your motivation, vision, and possible ideas for collaborations with peers from across the region.
- your approach to conflicts and peace and reasons for joining a program that builds conflict transformation skills;
- any any cross-border collaborations, international or activist experiences that you might have had.
Deadline of June 17, 2022.
