Welcome to the Build Peace Fellows Program for exceptional individuals who want to work at the intersection of peacebuilding, arts, research and technology. The program builds local innovative potential for individuals and organisations embedded in peacebuilding processes. Over one year, we help Fellows take an innovative peacebuilding intervention from idea to pilot implementation. Fellows also emerge with a strong understanding of best practices in innovation that will allow them to design and manage programs that introduce innovation processes to their peacebuilding work.
“The Build Peace Fellows Program has been an outstanding opportunity, not only to learn about peacetech, but also to have a hands-on experience regarding the possibilities and limitations of using technology for peacebuilding. In a time when ‘social innovation’ is a buzzword in peacebuilding and development projects, the Build Peace Fellows Programme is a unique opportunity to understand the prospects and risks of projects that involve technology for peacebuilding, and build context-sensitive and sustainable participatory projects that use technology appropriately, ethically and responsibly.” — Build Peace 2016-2017 Fellow
