Founded in 2004, the Great Lakes Peacebuilding Institute (GLPI) is a bilingual (French and English) institute that offers high quality intensive courses in peacebuilding to peace practitioners in the African Great Lakes region.
The Institute brings together an experienced international faculty with dedicated peace practitioners from the Great Lakes region and elsewhere for a stimulating opportunity to learn, network, share best practices and exchange stories of peacebuilding in the region.
Candidates who are working in the field of peacebuilding and wish to strengthen their knowledge and skills are invited to apply to this hands-on, practical and theoretical approach to peace practice.
GLPI provides the main institute, consisting of four modules during one month in October, as well as several one-week modules throughout the year.
