United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Fellowship programme

The UNAOC Fellowship Programme was created recognizing the need to build bridges between cultures and societies through dialogue and cooperation and to reinforce the political will and collective commitment to live together by strengthening mutual awareness and respect.

The programme aims to challenge cultural stereotypes and develop cross-cultural partnerships between peoples from different faiths and cultures. During two weeks, candidates will visit each other’s region and interact with a wide range of local actors and partners. In 2017, the Fellowship Programme will focus on the role of civil society and the media in combatting hatred and fostering inclusion.
