Ok, brace yourself, it is a long post! But the most important event of the year for the Center for Nonviolence, deserves a long post!
The URI Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies will offer its 8th annual Summer Institute from July 6-17.
The Institute certifies participants as trainers in the principles and practices of nonviolence conflict reconciliation.
According to Paul Bueno de Mesquita, Interim-Director of the Nonviolence Summer Institute, more than 30 people from around the world participated in the Level I or Level II Nonviolence trainings and received their certifications last year.
“This year we have already received inquiries and registrations from countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, Somalia, Nepal, and Columbia.” Mesquita said.
The Center’s former Director, Bernard LaFayette, Jr. Ed.D., Distinguished Visiting Scholar at URI’s nonviolence center, will facilitate the Institute.
There are two levels of certification offered through the Institute. Level I costs $750 and runs from July 6 through July 17. Level II is offered from July 13 through July 17 and costs $400. Deadline for registration is May 22.
