Global Peace Workshop

n this first annual Global Peace Workshop we explore youth contributions to conflict transformation, post-conflict peace building and reconstruction, looking beyond dominant theories relating to youth in conflict and exploring the challenges of youth exclusion from peacebuilding activities. We examine how young people’s relationships with societal structures are formed and negotiated, both through established and unconventional means, and how this impacts on peace processes in contested and divided places.

Organised by CESRAN International, Coventry University, Eko-Avrasya, Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC), and Karadeniz Technical University, the workshop brings together practitioners, academics and students of peace and conflict from institutions worldwide.

The workshop is open to anyone who has some experience and a demonstrable interest in the field of peace and conflict, ideally with special reference to young people. Experience can be academic, work-based or voluntary.

Participants do not require any advanced academic prerequisites beyond proficiency in English and a broad overview of current issues in peace and conflict. The most important skill is demonstrated practice and understanding. All of the documentation you supply will be taken into account but the greatest weight will be given to your experience, reasons for applying and suggestions for how you will implement the learning.

All participants at the workshop will receive a scholarship covering their accommodation fees. Participants will need to pay a small participation fee of 30 Euros and cover the costs of their flights and meals, along with any costs associated with obtaining a Turkish visa in their home country. Participants who accept a scholarship for flights enter into an agreement with the conference organisers to complete all necessary pre-arrival work
