Peace and its many aspects

Rotary Fellows

Check it out:  Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution.

“Rotary Peace Fellows are leaders promoting national and international cooperation, peace, and the successful resolution of conflict throughout their lives, in their careers, and through service activities. Fellows can earn either a master’s degree in international relations, public administration, sustainable development, peace studies, conflict resolution, or a related field, or a professional development certificate in peace and conflict resolution.”

“Each year, up to 100 Rotary Peace Fellowships (50 master’s degree fellowships and 50 professional development certificate fellowships) are offered on a competitive basis at six Rotary Peace Centers, which operate in partnership with seven leading universities (centers offer master’s degree unless noted otherwise):

* Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand (professional development center)
* Duke University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA
* International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan
* Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina
* University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England
* University of California, Berkeley, USA
* University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia ”

…and check out the video:

“Fellows are chosen from countries and cultures around the globe based on their ability to have a significant, positive impact on world peace and conflict resolution during their careers.”

This initiative is very interesting, not least of all because the Rotary is quite a significant organization world wide.  I also happen to know that they are looking to increase the universities (around the world) where the program exists.

“From north to south, and east to west, He profits most who serves the best…” (from The Rotary Song, composed by Norris C. Morgan in 1923!)
