The Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research. Member of the Leibniz Association (GEI) is pleased to announce the Call for Applications for the 2022 Georg Arnhold Senior Fellow for Education for Sustainable Peace. The appointment, for the fellowship including a research stay of up to six months at the GEI, offers outstanding scholars and experienced practitioners in the field of peace education the opportunity to carry out work in the area of education for sustainable peace, preferably with a focus on educational media and transformation societies, and to discuss their project and findings with other scholars and practitioners at the annual international Summer Conference of the Georg Arnhold Program.
The fellowship aims to promote education for sustainable peace with a particular focus on educational media and curricula at secondary school level in post-conflict or transitional societies. Its principal objectives are to bridge the gap between theory and practice, to foster international scholarly exchange as well as to translate research findings into practical recommendations for those active in conflict resolution, thereby contributing to civil society capacity building. The output from the fellowship holder’s work should therefore preferably be policy papers, educational materials, research papers, or a larger publication.
The Fellowship is endowed with
- A monthly stipend of up to 3,300 EUR for a fellowship period of up to six months, to include a longer stay (of at least 3 to six months) at the Georg Eckert Institute in Braunschweig, Germany
- Return economy airfare to Germany
- Administrative support provided by the program coordinators (including English language editing of publications published during, and as a result of, the fellowship).
Distinguished scholars from the humanities, political and social sciences, education sciences or law who hold a Ph.D. and have excellent knowledge of English may apply. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding academic or professional achievements in their field and ideally combine scholarly excellence and contact with hands-on practice and grassroots work.
Individuals with extensive, high-level international experience in government or non-governmental organizations or in international organizations, who have excellent knowledge of English are also welcome to apply. The Georg Eckert Institute will therefore also consider applications from practitioners who do not hold a Ph.D. but who have at least five years of advanced professional experience in the area of peace education and who can demonstrate that their work and/or research projects have made an exceptional impact in the field of peace education.
