Many are using the catch phrase ‘Big Era’ to describe the tumultuous times — full of change, confusion and uncertainty — in which we live. It also means we are all part of history in the making. How then do we shape our part in history? Can society develop without conflict? Must conflict always result in harm? Is there peace beyond compromise? What can we learn from other places that have experienced long-term and large-scale social/political unrest?
The Peace Fellowship programme is designed as a foundation course in peace studies for students interested in social, political and cultural issues. In a series of interactive workshops, site visits, panel or facilitated discussions and teamwork, Fellows will re-examine and rethink contemporary issues through the peace lens.
Peace Generation hosted our first cohort of 10 Peace Fellows in January 2021, our second cohort in June 2021, and third in January 2022. The upcoming Summer 2022 Peace Fellowship is now open for application.
