Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce that the Caux Scholars Program (CSP) in Switzerland is accepting applications for our summer peacebuilding program. Please help us find potential scholars for our summer CSP 2020 program and encourage them to apply. 

We are looking for committed students and young professionals from all continents and diverse backgrounds who will benefit tomorrow's peacebuilders.

The Caux Scholars Program is a 4-week residential conflict transformation program held annually at Caux, Switzerland. CSP deepens the work of practitioners in mainstream disciplines of conflict transformation, legislation and policy, development studies, international relations, and transitional justice through experiential learning tools and engagements with scholars from 15 or more countries. The program teaches students to identify and analyze conflicts, to understand the factors that create and sustain conflicts, and to use practical methods to diffuse conflicts through global disciplines in conflict prevention, negotiation, and development studies. Since the program’s inception in 1991, CSP has demonstrated conflict transformation in action where sustainable progress is made toward personal honesty, accountability, sustained dialogue, reflection, reconciliation, restorative justice, and people-centered decision-making processes. A deep lens into the procedures of international criminal courts, truth and reconciliation commissions, restitution/reparations, reintegration strategies (DDR), and memorialization practices, are also explored.
