The Makerere University Rotary Peace Center offers an Advanced Certificate in Peacebuilding, Conflict Transformation and Development hosted by the Makerere University Peace and Conflict Studies Program (PCS). Our program takes an experiential and learner-centered approach that integrates theory, research and practice to provide learners with practical skills.
The year-long blended-learning certificate program will emphasize issues and solutions that are of particular relevance throughout the African continent, and hands-on experience will complement coursework that addresses human rights, governance and media; the role of climate change; refugee migration and community cohesion.
The ideal candidate is a proven peace and development leader with at least five years of relevant work experience. Candidates need to come to the program with a social change initiative to promote peace and development within the program region or their community, and have a clear vision of how the fellowship experience and network will help advance their peace work and increase their impact. After the program, candidates should be willing to share their own work and experience, staying in touch with peace fellows in the region and maintaining strong connections with Rotarians.
