Two Peace Researchers will work together with four Women PeaceMakers Fellows to document the peacebuilding strategies and challenges they face in their work to end cycles of violence. The Women PeaceMakers program is based at the Institute for Peace and Justice (IPJ) at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies.
For 2018, the focus of the Program is on women’s participation in national or subnational peace negotiations.
Building on the Program’s 16 years of documenting the expertise of women peace leaders, and grounded in the Kroc IPJ’s mission to learn with peacemakers how to best end cycles of violence, the Women PeaceMakers Program uses a unique methodology based in theories of participatory action research. Founded in relationships of mutual trust, respect and co-learning, this methodology considers Women PeaceMakers to be experts and co-researchers in the design of case studies based on their lives and work.
This is a full time position for the two months of the peacemaker’s residency, taking place from September 24 – November 17, 2018.
