    We are excited to announce our fifth Summer Peacebuilding Program (SPP), a three-week long intensive training program designed to bridge the theory and practice of building peace in societies that are emerging from conflict, violence or war. SPP provides an opportunity for participants to learn from the experiences and approaches of scholars and practitioners who work on some of the most difficult challenges our world faces today, including resolving conflict, ending all forms of violence, providing social justice, and creating more secure and developed societies by transforming the conditions and relationships of conflict. SPP welcomes all those interested in exploring the above-mentioned topics through a process of self-reflection, gathering of theoretical and conceptual data and its application to real-world problems. Students and practitioners in the field of conflict, peace, development, and security studies are eligible to apply.

    The 2019 program will run from July 29 to August 16, 2019. The opening reception is scheduled for July 28 and participation in the event in mandatory. The first and second week of SPP will be held at the MIIS campus in Monterey with a lodging option within walking distance to campus. The third week of SPP will be residential at the Mount Madonna Conference Center in Watsonville, CA.

    SPP applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, so we review and respond to you two weeks after your application is received. The following is our admission criteria for the 2019 SPP:
