We aim to Develop experts of Peacebuilding and Development.
The Program for Global Human Resource Development for Peacebuilding and Development (Global Peacebuilders Program) is commissioned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan (MOFA Japan) in order to enhance civilian capacity for peacebuilding and development.
The Program includes the Primary Course, designed for those who have the strong will to build their careers in the field of peacebuilding and development, the Global Career Course, targeting those who are currently not working in international organizations, but aspire to work there utilizing their professional work experience, the Mid-Career Course, targeting those who already have about 10 years of work experience in the field of peacebuilding and development and aspire to further advance their careers, and the Career Development Support, which offers an opportunity for the participants to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for obtaining posts of the field of peacebuilding and development in the UN and other international organizations, such as NGOs.
The Program is implemented by the Hiroshima Peacebuilders Center (HPC), which was commissioned by MOFA Japan to run the “Program for Global Human Resource Development for Peacebuilding and Development”. The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme administrates the Overseas Assignment component of the Primary Course.
