IAfS Associate Director, Amb. Liberata Mulamula was selected to be one of this year’s Kroc IPJ’s Women PeaceMakers (WPM) fellows with a short-term residency at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School. Along learning from one another, the fellows will apply their knowledge and experience to tackle critical questions related to peacebuilding, guest lecture in the Kroc School’s peace and justice classes, collaborate with local organizations in San Diego, share their peacebuilding stories, and answer questions about their life’s work at the Women PeaceMakers Event, as conditions allow pending global COVID-19 circumstances.
This year’s theme is: How can international peacebuilding organizations better partner with local women peacebuilders to address the closing spaces and increased insecurity women are currently facing when working to end cycles of violence?
Congratulations Ambassador Mulamula!!!
