On February 18, Pax et Bellum, the student organisations of the Department for Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University, arranged a full “Hands-on Workshop” day with Dr. Björn Holmberg from Swedepeace. In the morning, Rotary Peace Fellows applied stakeholder analysis in a session in order to try a tool that helps to better understand actors´ incentives when promoting peace. In a brown bag lunch session, focus was on career development through a dialogue between the students and with Dr. Holmberg. During the afternoon session, the students applied a conflict analysis framework, developed by Swedepeace, on the Colombian conflict and then they identified options for action by constructing a theory of change in favour of sustainable peace. All with the aim of making peacebuilding and conflict prevention more concrete, precise and applicable in the “real world”. The Masters Programme brings together students from all corners of the world – including Rotary Fellows. The program prepares graduates for a professional career as analysts or researchers within the international field of peace and conflict.
