Call for Applications: KAICIID International Fellows Programme in the Africa Region

The International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID) is seeking applications from education professionals working in institutions that train future religious leaders to take part in the 2018 KAICIID International Fellows Programme.

Set to commence in February 2018, the International Fellows Programme will develop the abilities of religious educators to promote interreligious dialogue education and practice within their respective institutions. Following the success of the international, Arab Region and Southeast Asia programmes, KIFP is expanding to the Africa region.

KAICIID will select twenty Fellows from Africa to participate in the year-long course. Selected Fellows will participate in a series of in-person and online trainings related to interreligious dialogue, coexistence and pluralism. This integrated learning process will provide Fellows with an initial framework to facilitate subsequent trainings and programming within their home institutions. The Fellows will also develop and implement small-scale local and international projects during the course of the programme. There will also be opportunities to organize and attend dialogues, lectures, field visits and conferences.

The Fellows Programme brings together religious teachers from around the world for in-person and online training in dialogue, mediation and peacebuilding over the course of the year-long programme by KAICIID experts. The Fellows programme is designed to equip teachers with the skills to educate their students about interreligious dialogue; provide their students with the necessary skills to become active facilitators and leaders in interreligious dialogue; and to train their students in conflict transformation to be active peacemakers in their respective communities.

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply at www.kaiciid.org/fellows by 31 August 2017.
