The Rotary Peace Center at Chulalongkorn University is a collaborative effort of the Rotary Foundation and Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok Thailand.
The spike in conflicts around the world has underscored the need for professionals skilled in creating peace. Rotary created the Rotary Peace Centers in 2002 to identify and train highly qualified professionals to become agents of peace. Seven Rotary Peace Centers at eight prestigious universities throughout the world offer Rotary Peace Fellows a rigorous program of study and applied field experience in areas relating to peace and conflict resolution. The Rotary Peace Centers draw from Rotary’s long, unwavering commitment to peace, seen in projects that address the root causes of conflict.
The Rotary Peace and Conflict Studies at Chulalongkorn University itself was established in 2004/5initially as the three-year pilot program to provide a short professional development training to professionals working in fields related to peacebuilding and conflict resolution.
Later in April 2008, the Center was approved as a permanent program of the Rotary Foundation, folded to the pre-existing Rotary Center for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution and the Rotary World Peace Fellowships program.
Having adopted its current name as the Rotary Peace Center at Chulalongkorn University, the center continues the work on hosting “Rotary Peace Fellows” and on providing such three-month professional development certificate training course in peace and conflict studies twice yearly.
Today the Rotary Peace Center at Chula has already produced 537 peace alumni, from81 countries around the world, and still counting the number.
The Rotary Peace Center at Chulalongkorn University stay committed as a proud partner of Rotary in creating lasting change in communities and across the globe by providing academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities.
