The Georg Eckert Institute – Leibniz Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI) is pleased to announce the Call for Applications for the 2022 Georg Arnhold Senior Fellow. The appointment, for the fellowship including a research stay of up to six months at the GEI, offers outstanding scholars and experienced practitioners in the field of peace education the opportunity to carry out work in the area of education for sustainable peace, preferably with a focus on educational media and transformation societies, and to discuss their project and findings with other scholars and practitioners at the annual international Summer Conference of the Georg Arnhold Program.
The fellowship aims to promote education for sustainable peace with a particular focus on educational media and curricula at secondary school level in post-conflict or transitional societies. Its principal objectives are to bridge the gap between theory and practice, to foster international scholarly exchange as well as to translate research findings into practical recommendations for those active in conflict resolution, thereby contributing to civil society capacity building. The output from the fellowship holder’s work should therefore preferably be policy papers, educational materials, research papers, or a larger publication.
The fellowship offers
  • A monthly stipend of up to 3,300 EUR for a fellowship period of up to six months, to include a longer stay (of at least 3 to six months) at the Georg Eckert Institute in Braunschweig, Germany
  • Return economy airfare to Germany
  • Administrative support provided by the program coordinators (including English language editing of publications published during, and as a result of, the fellowship).
