Applications are being accepted for the 2013 Fellowship for Historical Dialogue and Accountability at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR), UNAOC’s Research Network partner. Deadline: March 1, 2013
Columbia University is pleased to welcome applications from around the world and from a wide range of professional sectors—including, but not limited to, human rights practitioners, journalists, academics, educators, filmmakers, artists—to apply.
In the fall semester of 2013 (August 28, 2013 – December 14, 2013) practitioners and students of historical dialogue will have the opportunity to engage in training, networking, project work, and academic study at Columbia University in New York City. During the Fellowship participants will also design a project that addresses a long standing sectarian conflict, history of repression or past gross human rights violations in their society, country or region. The program is part of the Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability (AHDA). AHDA offers fully funded fellowships which will cover travel, visa, and accommodation costs as well as a modest stipend to cover day to day living expenses during the program. In exceptional cases, self-funded candidates will be considered. Special funding is available for fellow(s) who address religious conflict.
The comprehensive program provides fellows with the opportunity to hone practical skills in fundraising, advocacy and leadership; to develop a deeper understanding of and engagement with the past; and to foster mutually beneficial relationships with their peers and with international and non-profit organizations in New York.
