Fakhrinur Huseynli Master on Peace and Conflict Transformation

My Dream of Peace

«On a square people begin to gather.

More and more people are coming together. They have come from all parts of the world: it is perceptible by the colours of their skin, the clothes they wear and the different musicality of their languages.

They get together in small groups. Inspired by the vision of a peaceful world, they gather deep and meaningful thoughts of peace. The thoughts are drawn on large sheets of paper. Now, these people start to get up, reaching into the drawings, and making them come alive. Suddenly, thoughts about peace turn into deliberate deeds, concrete steps of help, effective actions, spreading like a wave of peace all over the world.»

Pierre Brunner, President, World Peace Academy

MAS Master of Advanced Studies in Peace and Conflict Transformation

Degree - Content - Course Format - Fees - Intended Audience - Requirements - Academic Directors - Teaching Staff

This Masters program is accredited by the University of Basel, which will also issue the degree. The title "Master of Advanced Studies" is internationally recognized.

The Master of Advanced Studies in Peace and Conflict Transformation is concerned with the various forms and conditions of peace as well as the obstacles to them. Peace means the absence of war, and much more. Galtung introduced the distinction between direct, structural and cultural violence. Direct violence means hurting and killing; structural violence is the slow death from hunger and preventable or curable diseases caused by extreme inequality and political oppression; and cultural violence consists of the justification of direct and structural violence in education, the media, literature and art, in the form of nationalism, racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination and prejudice. Peace means the absence of those three forms of violence and includes measures both to alleviate and heal past violence as well as to prevent future violence.

This program explores all of these aspects of peace. Its objective is to enable the participants to play an active role in peaceful conflict transformation and in creating a culture of peace. In addition to conveying theoretical knowledge and practical skills for peace work, our program emphasizes also the personal development of the participants. They learn to analyze conflicts, to make prognoses, and to design and implement creative solutions. They learn to detect growing tensions early and know methods to deescalate conflicts and prevent violence. They learn how to mediate between conflict parties and how to encourage conciliation after violence. They learn how to promote peace and development through education and action, and how to facilitate intercultural understanding and cooperation.

Course Format
The educational concept combines interdisciplinary peace research with the teaching of constructive conflict transformation, the practical experience of multicultural coexistence and the development of personal competencies for peace.

The University of Ljubljana is an associate partner that offers additional mobility for students.

The programme is taught entirely in English (120 ECTS) and MIREES students will spend the first year in Forlì (one of the five campuses of the University of Bologna), while in the second year a minimum of 5 months will be spent at Partner Universities (including Ljubljana) and, in particular cases, at other MIREES Associated Universities in the Balkans. A mobility grant is offered to all enrolled students.

More detailed information on the teaching plan and the Faculty, together with the application form, can be found at our web site: http://www.mirees.unibo.it/ .

The programme is especially recommended for prospective PhD students. Our best alumni are currently attending doctorate programmes at the Universities of Oxford, Kent, the New School in New York and other prestigious international academic institutions. Moreover, the programme is designed to forge analysts, area experts, consultants and mediators, to meet the needs of research institutes, the European Commission,
international agencies, voluntary organizations and NGO's, public administration, managers, corporations and banks located in East-Central Europe and the Balkans or promoting investments in these regions. Most of our alumni have found employment precisely in these fields.

The programme aims at developing language skills. MIREES offers courses in Bosnian-Croatian- Serbian, Bulgarian, Russian, and Slovak (Hungarianand Lithuanian are also available in the 2nd year), as well as Italian for foreigners as an additional option. The curriculum stresses on interdisciplinary studies in the economics of transition; politics and international relations; history and cultural studies focused on Central, Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The international dimension of
the programme is enhanced through student mobility, by an international faculty composed of prominent scholars of international repute, and a genuinely international student body. (In the previous cycles we enrolled students from 21 countries including the US, Mexico, Russia, Georgia, Estonia, Macedonia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia, Germany, United Kingdom, Turkey, Albania, Poland, Armenia, Norway,
Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Azerbaijan, Slovak Republic, Finland and, of course, Italy.)

Therefore, we would be extremely grateful if you could encourage your BA students to consider applying to this two year programme and, at the same time, if you could forward this message to your colleagues interested in this part of the world.

CfA: Leading, Innovating & Negotiating: Critical Strategies for Public Sector Executives


Leading, Innovating & Negotiating: Critical Strategies for Public Sector Executives
A Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education Program
31 May 2010 - 3 June 2010
Athens, Greece

Leading, Innovating and Negotiating: Critical Strategies for Public Sector Executives offers participants analytical and problem-solving tools critical for advancing individual and organizational goals that are vital for generating, managing and leveraging innovation in an era of growing global complexity. This program is designed for senior professionals in the public and nonprofit sectors in Southeast and East-Central Europe. Applicants should have a minimum of 10 years of professional experience and a demonstrated commitment to public service.

Instruction will focus on three main areas, led by Harvard faculty who are experts in these fields:

Negotiation and conflict management, Professor Brian Mandell: This module provides a toolkit of strategic and analytical skills and conceptual frameworks that enable participants to accurately diagnose, shape and direct negotiations within and across organizations and sectors; design consensus-building procedures and build winning coalitions; examine cross-cultural differences and ethical dilemmas; sustain cooperative relationships; and manage complex, competitive environments.

Innovation, Professor Elaine Kamarck: This module aims to address the growing inability of governments and organizations to deal with public problems through old methods and traditional practices. It aims to assist participants in devising novel institutional arrangements to meet contemporary challenges, and teaches new managerial practices that enable participants to implement and sustain such new arrangements. It also offers insights on how to build comprehensive plans for executing change and seeks to provide participants with knowledge and strategies on how to influence an organization' s culture and alter the ways organizations and institutions respond to the challenge of innovation.

Leadership, Professor Roderick Kramer: This component focuses on effective leadership practices for managing group-level problem solving in organizations. Many important decisions are made in group contexts, and finding the right solution to the right problem is a key part of effective group decision making. Accordingly, this module presents a framework for thinking about how leaders can organize and manage problem solving teams. We also discuss ways in which leaders build trust and communicate effectively within the context of small groups.

Application Deadline: 26 April 2010

Program Fee: $5,250 (full tuition scholarships available for most accepted applicants)

PhD position in Regulation of Ion Channels In Carginogenesis, Nice, France


PhD position (CNRS/PACA funding) available from September 2010 in the Institute of
Developmental Biology and Cancer (UNSA CNRS UMR 6543), in the group of Dr Franck
Borgese at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis / CNRS, Nice, France.

Thesis supervisor: Dr Olivier Soriani
Our project will focus on the regulation of ion channels involved in cancer cell behaviour (apoptosis resistance, extra cellular matrix adhesion and degradation,
motility, proliferation). Recently, we have demonstrated that a unique tumour biomarker, the sigma-1 receptor (Sig1R), was functionally associated to Cl- and K+ channels in lung cancer and leukaemia cells. We have shown that the over-expression of Sig1R in cancer cells enhances cell apoptotic resistance through a decrease of volume-regulated Cl- channels activation kinetics (Renaudo et al., 2007; Le Guennec et al., 2008). Moreover, exogenous sigma ligands inhibit cell cycle through a K+ channel / p27kip1-dependent pathway (Renaudo et al. 2004).

The project will deal on the molecular mechanisms associating the Sig1R to ion channels aberrantly expressed in leukaemia and breast cancer cells, in relation to their aggressiveness state. Finally, in vivo significance of the described mechanisms will be explored in a mouse metastatic model.

Main technical approaches: Molecular cell biology, genetics, microscopy imagery and
electrophysiology (patch-clamp).

We are seeking highly talented and self-motivated candidates. A background in the field of electrophysiology and cell physiology will be appreciated. The position
will be available on September 2010.

Candidates are invited to obtain application forms from soriani@unice.fr or borgese@unice.fr

Application deadline: Friday 30th April. Provisional date for auditions of short listed candidates: Monday 17th May

Humphrey Fellowship

The Humphrey Fellowship Program provides a year of professional enrichment in the United States for experienced professionals from designated countries throughout the world. Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or private sector.

Each year approximately 200 Fellows funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State engage in non-degree study and related professional experiences at selected American universities. Started in 1978, the program now has a network of over 4,000 alumni in 157 countries around the world working to improve their communities and the lives of those in need.

Fellows are placed at one of eighteen American universities chosen for excellence in relevant Humphrey fields and for the resources and support they offer Humphrey Fellows. The host campus selection process is open to all universities. This year’s university competition is in the field of Substance Abuse Education, Treatment, and Prevention.

The fellowships are granted competitively to both public and private sector candidates with a commitment to public service in the fields of:
