About the Peace Advocacy Fellowship

The Balfour Project launched the first pilot Peace Advocacy Fellowship in 2019. Since then there have been three further cohorts. The Fellowship is open to final year undergraduate and postgraduate students based in the UK who are committed to the Balfour Project Approach.

Fellows are given the opportunity to make a tangible contribution to the work of the Balfour Project by campaigning for peace through advocacy and educational activities within their academic institution and/or with the wider public.

Programme Structure

The Fellowship programme is formed of two components : a training programme and group project development. Fellows are expected to take part in the Balfour Project training programme comprised of knowledge and skills workshops led by experts on topics including international law, history, psychology of conflict, public speaking, campaigning, and event planning.

Alongside the training programme, Fellows are expected to develop group projects within the cohort on areas related to Israel/Palestine that they feel passionate about. The Fellowship programme puts an emphasis on active projects, such as campaigns, workshops, campus events and panel discussions. Read more about previous and current Fellows projects here.

The Fellows work closely with and are supervised by the Fellowship coordination team. Find out more about the 2022/2023 cohort here
