British Council will implement the Enabling University Peace Education in Regional Conflict/Post-conflict Settings (EUPE) Project – an ambitious and innovative peace education programme in Sudan and Ethiopia. We are seeking a Project Co-ordinator to support the project delivery in Ethiopia to be part of the country delivery team.
The British Council started implementing the European Union (EU) funded ‘Enabling University Peace Education in Regional Conflict/Post-conflict Settings in Sudan and Ethiopia on 1 February 2021.
The British Council believes that universities can contribute further to positive social change and peacebuilding in Ethiopia by providing high-quality, experiential peace education for their students. In doing so, they will support a generation of young university graduates, particularly women, who can participate more effectively in peacebuilding as students, as active citizens at local, national, or regional levels, and as professionals in their future careers, thereby contributing to building lasting peace.
‘Enabling University Peace Education in Regional Conflict/Post-conflict Settings’ enables:
- Collaboration with peacebuilding organizations and students on peace education curriculum development,
- Training university faculty in participatory teaching approaches,
- Support of local researchers to focus on context-specific issues related to peace and link this to teaching, and
- creating the basis for sustainable high-quality peace education courses and research through regional and international cooperation and knowledge exchange.
The project has five main areas of activity:
- Peace education courses for young men and women in universities.
- Context-driven and gender-sensitive peace research
- Support for communities of practice in peacebuilding through collaborative activities and research with universities
- National and regional cooperation in peace education across Africa
- Equitable international partnerships in peace-related subjects between universities in Ethiopia, and universities in the EU/UK.
The project engages with a range of stakeholders, with a focus on undergraduate students, especially female students, in universities; university teachers and researchers, particularly women; civil society organizations, women’s organizations, and other peacebuilding actors, especially those working in communities at the local level; and national, regional, and international centers for peace research. We partner with national government authorities in Ethiopia responsible for higher education and peace.
‘Enabling University Peace Education in Regional Conflict/Post-conflict Settings’ is a three-year project managed by the British Council and funded by the European Union and the British Council.
