The fully funded project Peace Education Corridors for Youth aims to strengthen the internationalization of higher education for students throughout Georgia in the field of Peace and Conflict. Access to international education opens far-reaching personal and professional development perspectives and is a vital resource to address conflicts in society. Conflicts are commonplace in the coexisting of individuals, groups, societies, and countries. The challenge we often face is to resolve these disputes peacefully and constructively, which requires several specific skills and competencies. Sound knowledge of such competencies enables us to analyze and address complex conflict structures and dynamics. Our project aims to introduce the participants to the fundamentals of conflict analysis and peacebuilding. Moreover, we strive to train the participants on core competencies in the field of dialogue, mediation, and self-awareness. Successful students will have the opportunity to apply for a fully funded one-week summer school in Germany.
The project kicks-off with several three-day workshops in Georgia, for which you have to apply separately. For details please see below.
