Eligibility Requirements

The workshop is open to anyone who has some experience and a demonstrable interest in the field of peace and conflict, ideally with special reference to young people. Experience can be academic, work-based or voluntary.

Participants do not require any advanced academic prerequisites beyond proficiency in English and a broad overview of current issues in peace and conflict.
