Kigali: APPLICATION FOR THE PEACE-BUILDING INSTITUTE

January-17
10:31 AM 2018

Kigali, Rwanda

February 12 - 24, 2018

The Peace-Building Institute was founded as a platform that brings together Rwandan, regional and international university students and young professionals to examine and discuss how post genocide society has dealt with legacies left by the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. Respectively, it is a forum where the challenges and strategies used by Rwanda to extricate itself from the consequences of the genocide and reshape the present and future are discussed.

We aim at empowering young people with skills to prevent and overcome violence and negative ethnicity by creating awareness about the History and consequences of Genocide. To effectively achieve these goals, the PBI commits itself to;

Reflect on Rwanda’s history and the process leading to the genocide committed against the Tutsi and its aftermath consequences.
Provide participants with experiential learning on concepts of Genocide and mass atrocities, transitional justice, women peace and security and governance aspects in post-conflict and post-genocide societies
Empower youth with knowledge and skills to take the initiative to generate their own momentum as peace builders in their communities.
A broader understanding of their roles as peace builders in the community at large.
We hope that at the end of the Peacebuilding Institute participants will have:

Developed skills to facilitate dialogue between those that have lived through conflict and those who want to learn from them to build a global network of responsible leaders.
