Call for Application: Global Peace and Youth Workshop in Turkey
Turkey (1-5 July, 2013).
In 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.
All participants at the workshop will receive a scholarship covering their
accommodation fees and meals. Participants will need to pay a small
participation fee of 30 Euros and cover the costs of their flights, along with
any costs associated with obtaining a Turkish visa in their home country.
