Information and submission procedures summer school students NCP September 2022

The Normandy Chair for Peace officially invite students to take part in a novel summer school program centered on the Rights of Future Generations, Peace and the Environment. The 5-Day program will be held from 1st to 5th of September 2022 at the University of Caen in Normandy, France. It will be followed by a full day of discovery of Normandy and its history on 6th September. There will be simultaneous translation in French and English.

To give you a brief background, the Normandy Chair for Peace was established on June 5, 2019, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Beach landings. It also happens to be the UN World Environment Day. The symbolic Chair for Peace is a product of the cooperation between the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), the University of Caen, and the Government of the Region Normandy of France. They had a path breaking idea to change the narrative of Normandy from a symbol of war to a symbol of peace. Hence, the creation of the Normandy Chair for Peace.

The NCP Summer School is part of our efforts to change the narrative through education and training in science-based policy development and diplomacy. We will tackle an extensive array of subject matters such as climate change, transitional justice, the necessity of a dialogue with indigenous peoples, international environmental law, human security, and other interconnected issues.

If any of your students are interested to apply, they must provide a short motivational letter (professional experience, academic background, career goals and cross-cultural experiences), and a one-page Curriculum Vitae. Please email to chairenormandiepourlapaix@unicaen.fr, ponce.nicoleann@gmail.com

In case your university can fund the travel tickets, we can book and pay for their accommodation and lunches.
In case your university cannot fund their travel tickets, please note that we cannot cover the cost of all travel expenses but we will do our best help.

The application deadline is on July 6th and the confirmation of the application and scholarship for the laureates on July 7th. For more information, please refer to the attached brochure.
