      The United States Institute of Peace invites applications for the
      2004-2005 Senior Fellowship competition in the Jennings Randolph
      Program for International Peace. The United States Institute of
      Peace is an independent, nonpartisan institution created by
      Congress to strengthen the nation's capacity to promote the
      peaceful resolution of international conflict. Twelve to fifteen
      fellowships are awarded annually to scholars and practitioners
      from a variety of professions, including college and university
      faculty, journalists, diplomats, writers, educators, military
      officers, international negotiators, NGO professionals, and
      lawyers. The Institute funds projects related to preventive
      diplomacy, ethnic and regional conflicts, peacekeeping and peace
      operations, peace settlements, democratization and the rule of
      law, cross-cultural negotiations, nonviolent social movements,
      U.S. foreign policy in the 21st century, and related topics. This
      year the Institute is especially interested in topics addressing
      problems of the Muslim world, post-war reconstruction and
      reconciliation, and responses to terrorism and political
      violence. Projects which demonstrate relevance to current policy
      debates will be highly competitive. Fellows reside at the
      Institute in Washington, D.C., for a period of up to ten months
      to conduct research on their projects, consult with staff, and
      contribute to the ongoing work of the Institute. Books and
      reports resulting from fellowships may be published by the USIP
      Press. The fellowship award includes a stipend of up to $80,000,
      travel to Washington for the fellow and dependents, health
      insurance, an office with computer and voicemail, and a half-time
      research assistant. The competition is open to citizens of all
      nations. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

        Master of Laws (LL.M.) & Doctor of the Science of Law (J.S.D.)Programs
        in Intercultural Human Rights

        Accepting Applications for Academic Year 2009-2010

        One-year program offered by St. Thomas University School of law Miami,
        Florida. Best students can further their education with the J.S.D
        (Doctor of the Science of Law) in Human Rights.

        Both degrees are acquiesced in by the American Bar Association.

        Welcome to our LL.M. Program in Intercultural Human Rights, a globally
        unique program designed to offer in-depth instruction on the critical
        issue of our time: the protection of human dignity across political,
        social, economic, and cultural lines. Excelling since 2001, and widely
        regarded as one of the world's best in the field, the program provides
        the most up-to-date legal insights on theory, policy, and practical
        developments in the arena of human rights.

        Our mostly one-week compact courses are designed to offer the highest
        quality of legal education in the combined areas of international law,
        international human rights law, humanitarian law, universal and
        regional systems of human rights protection, as well as complaint

        Through these intensive courses and supplementary offerings, students
        are prepared for effective research, advocacy and practice in the field.
        In interactive dialogue, networking with distinguished faculty and their
        classmates from all over the globe students gain the best available
        inside knowledge of human rights in action.

        Our LL.M. program, in the mold of the integrative law, science and
        policy approach developed at the Yale Law School, and widely known as
        the Policy-Oriented Jurisprudence, provides a sophisticated background
        in international law and prepares students for leadership positions in
        society, be them judicial, legislative, governmental or
        non-governmental. Our alumni testify to all this.

        The faculty is one of worldwide distinction and includes top-level
        United Nations experts, chief legal advisors, judges, scholars and
        practitioners in the field, hailing from Yale University, as well as
        Athens, Berlin, Geneva, Strasbourg, Kinshasa, and Washington D.C. Their
        diversified legal backgrounds and experiences, their range of
        scholarship and academic excellence provide students with an
        intellectually challenging and multi-dimensional approach to education.

        A variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities enriches the
        programs and creates wonderful opportunities for our students.

        The program's setting in Miami, a city of international flavour and
        extraordinary cultural diversity, offers breathtaking natural treasures
        and beauty, a wealth of cultural attractions, sporting events, and an
        exciting intercultural environment.

        Partial scholarships are available.
