Fellowship in Peace Studies
During the 10-month fellowship, the program will focus on the question: How can Women PeaceMakers and international partners build more effective local-global collaborations in their peacebuilding efforts to engage the security sector?
Participants will be selected based on their work with the security sector (police, military and other security forces) to advance peacebuilding, human security and women’s rights in local contexts. Four Women PeaceMakers will be selected to participate in the following activities from September 2017 to June 2018:

While on campus, PeaceMakers will also give public presentations and interact with students, faculty, and the university and San Diego communities.
