Peace Building Institute

Each year, Never Again Rwanda hosts a two-week Peace-Building Institute that brings International, regional and local university students together in Rwanda. Participants discuss the question, “What can Rwanda teach the world?”

Through readings of a shared set of texts, site visits, lectures and group discussions, participants explore themes of genocide, transitional justice, good governance & development and learn skills as global citizens in cross-cultural dialogue, critical thinking, analysis of complex issues and problem solving.

    1. Hi Adem,

      Thank you for your persistence! The PBI application process is highly competitive and it really depends on the pool of applicants that we receive for a given PBI session. The admission panel considers applicants’ field of study, references, relevant experience, and their answers to the questions in the application. If you require further information, please feel free to email with your questions/concerns.

      Good luck this time, and all the best!
