Welcome to the Build Peace Fellows Program for exceptional individuals who want to amplify citizen participation in peace. 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 participation and innovation for peace 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

FELLOWSHIP COMPONENTS


Training

Fellows come together for joint training that covers a variety of topics including participatory methodologies, user-centered design and conflict sensitivity. Training provides fellows with the tools they need to design and manage innovative projects. We help fellows to think like product managers – linking developers and experts with peacebuilding objectives.


Accompaniment

Each Fellow is assigned a Build Up staff who acts as their lead mentor. Lead mentors work with Fellows to identify additional mentors (Build Up staff or from the Build Peace network) who have skills or experience relevant to the Fellow’s intervention. Through monthly calls, regular email communication and visits to their project location, the mentors provide project management support, technical advice and hands-on problem solving.


Networking

Build Up helps Fellows to communicate their work externally, supporting them to produce communication materials and opening doors to public speaking events. Build Up also facilitates connections with other Fellows in its network. Fellows join a global network of local activists and practitioners working to re-think participation in peace.


Grant funding

Fellows receive a grant to cover some of the technical and implementation costs of their intervention. The exact grant amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the specific needs of an intervention. Fellows are expected to engage with all aspects of the Fellowship program and become active members of the Build Peace community; applications seeking only grant funding are not a strong match to the program.
