      THE GLOBALISATION OF VIOLENCE AND THE IDENTIFICATION OF NON-VIOLENT
      ALTERNATIVES (SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 19, ROVRETO TN, ITALY)

      A three-week residential course examining the psychological,
      geo-political aspects of the "new" war, its connection to globalisation
      and the identification of non-violent alternatives. The teaching
      faculty and participants are drawn from many countries all over the
      world. The course takes place in a transnational context of positive
      interaction between faculty and participants and of intensive exchange
      of experiences among people coming from different cultures, societies
      and social backgrounds.

      ADMISSION TO THE INTERNATIONAL COURSE
      The number of participants will be confined to twenty-four, at least
      half of whom will be women. A balance will be sought between
      participants from "developed" and "developing" countries. Fluency in
      English is required. Priority for admission to the International course
      will be given to applicants who are active in organisations of civil
      society or social movements involved in human rights promotion,
      non-violent conflict transformation and peace education.

      Closing date for application: Sunday 15 June 2003

      REQUIREMENTS
      Participants must arrive on Sunday 28th September and leave on Sunday
      19th October 2003. There is no option for late arrival. Participants
      must remain for the scheduled period.

      Participation in all sessions is requested. Selected participants will
      be asked to send before the beginning of the course a brief presentation
      of no more than 1000 words. Applicants are requested to confirm their
      participation to the IUPIP Secretariat by fax or e-mail not later than
      ten days after receiving notice of acceptance. Confirmation is
      understood to entail acceptance of the above conditions.

      Successful completion of the course will be marked by the awarding of a
      Certificate of Achievement.

      VENUE
      The seat of IUPIP and the location of the course is in Rovereto. The
      course is held in the 16th Century Palazzo Adami situated in the centre
      of the city. Rovereto (included in the Italian network of local
      government units for peace) has about 35,000 inhabitants.

      The city is located in Northern Italy, in the beautiful Adige valley
      surrounded by mountains and not far from lake Garda. It takes less than
      one hour by train from Verona and about three hours from Venice or
      Milan.

      TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION
      Accommodation expenses (including meals) for those admitted to the
      course will be covered by IUPIP. A vegetarian option is available.
      Applicants whose organisations are not able to cover their travel
      expenses are asked to indicate so in the application form. IUPIP will
      consider the possibility of partial or total coverage of such expenses
      taking the geographical area of origin of the applicant into account.
      Participants will be accommodated in double rooms at Hotel Leon d'Oro
      which is located a few minutes walk both from the railway station and
      from Palazzo Adami (IUPIP).
