I suspect that, like many Rotarians, I was only vaguely aware that Rotary had a Peace Fellowship programme based at Bradford University. When a few months ago Ruth announced that she intended to attend the annual Peace Fellowship Seminar, I was keen to find out more.
On Saturday 26 October, Rotarians Ruth Otway, Angie Biggs, Roger Downing and I spent the day at Bradford University and what an inspirational day it was!
Each year since 2002 The Rotary Foundation has been funding around 70 Rotary Peace Fellows at 6 universities around the World, including at the Bradford Peace Studies Department. Students are not allowed to attend a centre in their own country. The course consists of a mixture of academic study and practical experience with a dissertation to complete the course.
