For the first time the Dutch Foundation for Peace Studies (Stichting VredesWetenschappen) will award a special peace prize for college (HBO) students: the HBO Peace in Practice Research Award. The granting will be combined with the awarding of the MA Thesis Prize “Visions on Peace” to a university (WO) student who wrote an excellent thesis on peace and security issues. This prize will be handed out for the 8th time and is co-organized by UPEACE Centre The Hague. Both awardings will take place at the Haagse Hogeschool on Wednesday 9 December 2015, 14.00-17.00 hrs. Registration is required by 6 December through email@example.com.
The Dutch Foundation for Peace Studies wants to stimulate research in the field of peace and security by awarding these prizes. The financial rewards have been made available by the ASN Foundation.
