Columbia University invites practitioners of Historical Dialogue and Accountability/Dealing with the Past for the Fellowship for Historical Dialogue and Accountability.
Deadline: March 1, 2013
Applications are being accepted for the 2013 Fellowship for practitioners of Historical Dialogue and Accountability at Columbia University's Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR).
In the fall semester of 2013 (late August - December) practitioners of dealing with the violent pasts from conflict, post-conflict and post-dictatorial societies will have the opportunity to engage in training, networking, project work, and academic study at Columbia University in New York City. The comprehensive program provides Fellows with the opportunity to hone practical skills in fundraising, advocacy and leadership, develop a deeper understanding of dealing with the past, and foster mutually beneficial relationships with their peers and with international and non-profit organizations in New York City. During the Fellowship participants are expected to design a Fellowship project that addresses a history of gross human rights violations in their society, country and/or region. The Fellowship is fully funded. Travel, visa and accommodation costs are fully covered. During the program Fellows will receive health insurance as well as a stipend to cover living expenses in New York City. US and non US citizens may apply.
