The Balfour Project (UK) invites applications for its peace advocacy fellowship program.
This paid fellowship (now in its third year) is aimed primarily (but not exclusively) at post-graduate and final-year undergraduate students who are committed to the Balfour Project ethos. The successful applicants will advocate for peace and equal rights on the basis of the Balfour Project approach, applying professional tools provided in the fellowship training.
The aims and objectives of the Balfour Project are :
… to achieve a much greater public awareness of Britain’s current and historic responsibilities in the Middle East, and in particular its role there in the first half of the twentieth century.
The Balfour Project accordingly invites the government and people of the United Kingdom
● to learn what the Balfour Declaration and Palestine mean for both Arabs and Jews,
● to acknowledge that while a homeland for the Jewish people has been achieved, the promise to protect the rights of the Palestinian people has not been fulfilled,
● and to urge effective action to promote justice, security, and peace for Israelis and Palestinians.
More information about these Fellowships, including the application form, is available online.
