Caux Scholars Program

The Caux Scholars Program (CSP) enables twenty people from around the world every year to become trustbuilders in their communities through experiential education in conflict transformation and principled leadership.

The Caux Scholars Program teaches students to analyze conflicts, to understand the factors that create and sustain conflicts, and provide practical understanding of approaches to resolving conflicts - conflict prevention, negotiation and transitional justice.

Twenty students from around the world are selected for this four-week course held in Caux, Switzerland, during the Initiatives of Change global summer conferences. The program includes approximately 40 hours of academic classes, seven hours per week of “Service for Leadership” practical work, a field trip to Geneva and participation in the Caux conferences.

Frequently practitioners see conflict resolution, development and humanitarian relief as distinct areas of practice. In reality, these fields are intrinsically intermingled. Embracing a conflict transformation lens can make humanitarian and development projects more sustainable. CSP trains practitioners of mainstream conflict transformation and transitional justice perspectives to improve their work, regardless of their programmatic specialty.
