Offer: Call for Applications: Women Peacemakers and Women Peace Writers

Now Accepting Applications for Women Peace Makers and Peace Writers

2013 Women PeaceMakers Program
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice, University of San Diego
Women PeaceMaker Application Deadline: May 1, 2013

The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ) at the University of San Diego in California, is currently accepting applications for its Women PeaceMakers Program (WPM). The WPM program is designed for leaders from conflict-affected countries around the world who are transforming conflict and assuring gender-inclusion in post conflict recovery through the human rights advocacy and peace building efforts they lead. These are women whose stories and best practices will be shared internationally; they are women who will have a respite from the frontlines work they do.

Four Women PeaceMakers are selected each year to spend two months in residence at the Institute. They will receive a small stipend while having their unique peacemaking stories documented, through both film and narratives that will be available to inspire others around the world. Women PeaceMakers in residence will have the opportunity to engage with thecommunity through a series of public forums and to meet with other activists and leaders involved in human rights, political action and peacemaking efforts. Following the residency, alumnae will be linked through a global and a regional network to project gender-inclusive peacebuilding expertise locally, regionally and internationally.

Four Peace Writers are selected each year to partner with and document the stories of Women PeaceMakers (WPMs) for publication. Writers will interview one WPM and engage in extensive research to become familiar with the history of her conflict and peacemaking efforts.

Residency dates are August 19 – October 11 for Peace Makers and August 13 – October 25 for Peace Writers.

For more information about the program and an application please visit the IPJ web site at http://peace.sandiego.edu/wpm or contact Jennifer Freeman, Women PeaceMakers Program Director, at jenfreeman@sandiego.edu
