INCORE International Summer School 17-21 June 2013
Bursaries available for Northern Ireland community relations practitioners
Application Deadline 10 June 2013 (to be received by 9am)
INCORE has received funding from the Community Relations Council for 10 bursaries for Northern Ireland community relations practitioners to attend our International Summer School. Places are available on the following modules:
Culture and Peacebuilding
Dr Stephen Ryan and Professor Brandon Hamber (INCORE)
In 2013 Londonderry/Derry is going to be the UK City of Culture. It therefore seems appropriate that INCORE will offer a new module on Culture and Peacebuilding as part of its Summer School during this year. Following a general overview of the relationships between culture and peace and an investigation of some key theories in this field, there will be a day each devoted to drama, sport and the moving image and their contribution to peacebuilding. The module will focus on experiential learning and use a range of contributors including academics and practitioners from Northern Ireland, and participants will also have an opportunity to make presentations about their own work or that of their organizations.
Peacemaking and Peacebuilding in Northern Ireland
Professor Gillian Robinson and Dr. Brendan Lynn (INCORE)
This module is aimed specifically at undergraduates or individuals interested in exploring the lessons from Northern Ireland in terms of peacemaking and peacebuilding. Through a series of lectures and workshops with INCORE staff and invited speakers participants will be able to examine some of the key themes and issues for themselves. The subject matter to be covered will include an introduction to conflict transformation and peacebuilding theory; peacemaking and the new political disposition in Northern Ireland; justice, truth and reconciliation; victims, survivors and commemoration; and public opinion and attitudinal change in Northern Ireland.
To date, numerous international applicants from over 10 countries, from a diverse range of organisations have confirmed their attendance. We would very much encourage potential Northern Ireland participants to apply as our international participants benefit enormously from your expertise. Evaluations from previous Summer Schools have highlighted the value of this international networking.
