MIIS Students Publish Sierra Leone Experiences

Jump to Comments

Professor Pushpa Iyer, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Conflict Resolution here at MIIS, led 14 Monterey Institute and Middlebury students in a two-week course in Sierra Leone last January. Sierra Leone continues to struggle to build a stable civil society in the aftermath of a decade of brutal civil war that only ended in 2002. The Challenges in Peacebuilding Practicum allowed students to study firsthand this ongoing peacebuilding effort in the war-torn West African state.

Their experiences and reflections are now being published in a semi-weekly series on the Women’s International Perspective (WIP) website. The first two, by Dr. Iyer and Veronica Beebe (IPS), are currently available here.
