conflict resolution and transformation; litigation and advocacy

The UNESCO Chair will provide all conference participants with dormitory
housing, meals, ground transportation in Connecticut, resource materials and a certificate of participation. Accepted participants are responsible for
their travel to Connecticut.

and with demonstrated ability to work on solutions to human rights problems,
should apply. Relevant issues include, but are not limited to, human
trafficking, the plight of children, refugees, hunger, HIV/AIDs, gender
discrimination, racism, classism, the environment and peace education.
