In January 2018 we welcomed our new project partners from Haramya University, Ethiopia for the kickoff meeting of an exciting new partnership with our colleagues from Haramaya University, Ethiopia.
HU-UIBK Partnership for Strengthening Institutional Capacity in Peacebuilding and Conflict Transformation (PSICPCT) is an academic partnership between the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, at Haramaya University (HU), Ethiopia and the UNESCO Chair for Peace at the University of Innsbruck (UIBK), Austria with its MA Program in Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation. The partnership is one of institutional capacity building and collaborative curricular innovation in the field of peace and conflict transformation in Ethiopia, and aims to lay the foundation for the establishment of an engaged Centre for Peace and Development at HU. Its overall objective is to enhance peace building efforts and conflict transformation approaches in the academy and on the ground in Ethiopia.
