The peace prize this year has been awarded to Shota Adamia ’15, Natan Odenheimer ’15 and Sarah van Buren ’13.

Shota is going to conduct research in Ireland and Northern Ireland, regarding the issues of nationalism and unionism in Northern Ireland. In Spring 2013 semester, Shota is scheduled to arrange an exhibition of photos and films he will take and will combine with relevant texts he will write. The exhibit will be open to public.

 

 

Natan is going to conduct and co-moderate 5 informal, non-affiliated meetings of teams in special units in the Israeli army and a young Arab-Israeli leader. Natan’s project is “catered towards the kind of people who likely would never otherwise go to a coexistence event.” He is going to blog about his experience over the course of the project.

 

 

Sarah is working on the implementation of a domestic violence module in an existing midwife education program for community based health workers from rural regions of Timor Leste. This winter, she will be conducting field work with fifty rurally based midwives regarding the above-mentioned issue.
