The War Childhood Museum’s jury selected Teuta Bicaj as the scholarship holder for the “Mediterranean: Frontier of Peace, Education and Reconciliation” program!
Developed through the cooperation of the Rondine Cittadella della Pace and the Italian Bishops’ Conference (CEI), the advanced two-year program centers on learning the Rondine method of creative conflict transformation but also involves attending the University of Siena’s “Conflict Management and Humanitarian Action” MA program. Finally, following a year of studies and training, the participants in the program return to their local communities to implement a social impact project of their own.
Upon her return from Italy, Teuta will be joining the WCM’s team as a full-time employee for a minimum of one year, and during this time implement her project titled “Excluded Narratives: Mapping the Wartime Experiences of National Minorities in BiH”. Previously, Teuta completed a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and a BA in English Language and Literature and is one of the co-founders of the European Youth Parliament in BiH.
We wish Teuta a lot of success in Italy, and look forward to welcoming her to the team soon!
This is the second cycle of the program for the War Childhood Museum as a partner institution, and the said scholarship covers tuition fees, living costs and monthly allowance, but also the funds necessary for the project’s implementation. More details available here.
