Deadline: 15 March 2021
HLI provides training in the principles, practices, and psychology of effective, ethical and visionary leadership. We also train Hansen Fellows to be effective communicators and public speakers. In recent years, we have begun to expand our focus to gender issues in leadership as well. The intense, 24/7 face to face community of our three-week program becomes a path to a vibrant virtual hub, where Hansen alum engage, connect, and mutually support each other’s projects of peace and community building.
Mediation & Conflict Resolution
Peace-making is an art that requires knowledge and subtle interpersonal skills. HLI provides first-class training and hands-on instruction in these areas. We also equip our Fellows to communicate respectfully and effectively across cultural and political divisions, with a purpose of reconciliation and restorative justice. Human rights issues are central in many situations of conflict resolution. So, HLI Fellows also receive training from a human rights activist and expert who has extensive knowledge and experience in these areas.
The heart of HLI is that it fosters deep friendship and solidarity with like-minded others from zones of conflict across the world. Fellows become lifelong members of a close-knit and highly engaged international community, which exposes them to new opportunities for service, education, and friendship across borders. The three-week program itself is a yearly experiment in international cooperation. People from warring countries start as awkward roommates. They leave the program as close friends with a mutual resolve to make peace between their peoples.
The Hansen Leadership Institute will begin accepting U.S. applications for our 2021 Summer Institute on September 18, 2020. You must be a citizen of the United States to apply. To apply, go to: https://hansenleadershipinstitute.org/
Please note: The International Search for the 2020 Hansen Leadership Institute was completed in February 2020. The U.S. Search for 2020 was cancelled before its completion, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For the same reason, the 2020 HLI was postponed until 2021. The next International Search for Hansen Fellows will begin in September 2021.
