If granted, this project would last six years (2021-2026) and funded with about 20 million NOK. The six-years project is entitled: "Partnership for Peace: Better Higher Education for Resilient Societies".

This will be a cooperation coordinated by NCHR together with PRIO, partnering with five leading institutions in three different parts of the world, including Africa (Makerere University, Uganda; African School of Economics, Benin; and Mekelle University, Ethiopia), Latin-America (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia) and the Middle East (Birzeit University, Palestine).

Together we will organize PhD courses, train junior faculty staff, develop relevant curricula and arrange academic exchanges. This cooperation will take place in the context of a research school focusing on peace and conflict and human rights issues. The project shall develop a global network for enhancing academic capabilities in the fields of Peace and Conflict and Human Rights research.
