The first group of students in the Women’s Peacebuilding Leadership Program included women from Africa (Liberia, Kenya, and regions in and around Somalia) and the South Pacific (Fiji and Solomon Islands) at the 2012 Summer Peacebuilding Institute under EMU’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. The Women’s Peacebuilding Leadership Program offers mentoring and education in the theory and practice of peacebuilding, integrating globally-based theories and traditional understandings and practices. It equips participants to work at root causes of conflict, in order to transform current realities. Learn more at: emu.edu/cjp/womens-leadership
