Program Description:

Church Sign

This groundbreaking program utilizes the resources of Makerere University and engages with the active peacebuilding and NGO community to study the root causes of conflict. Study in both Uganda and Rwanda helps students gain perspective about the complexities of conflict, regional and international responses, and efforts towards lasting peace. Opportunities to interact with local residents, including victims, enhance understanding of the impact of conflict and the challenges of reconciliation.

In both Uganda and Rwanda, one week of classroom discussions, readings, and lectures focuses on history, contemporary politics, and the role of the state. Excursions to carefully selected sites, introductory language instruction, and homestays with local families complement studies.
