CEDAR Director Adam Seligman has been named a Fulbright Specialist at Uganda Martyrs’ University (UMU), where he will spend two months starting in May 2016. During this time he will use CEDAR’s pedagogic approach to help develop a program in conflict resolution and peace studies for UMU’s Equator Peace Academy (EPA), a CEDAR affiliate school. Bringing Professor Seligman to Uganda for an extended period will allow UMU to integrate CEDAR and EPA pedagogy and incorporate it more strongly into the culture of the university as a whole. Crucially, it will allow the EPA to expand CEDAR’s pedagogy beyond the summer programs and to act as a bridge between the university and broader local communities within Uganda.
Congratulations Prof Adam
