Among the applicants who are accepted this year will be members of the first cohort at Rotary’s newest peace centre, Bahçeşehir University in Istanbul, Turkey. The new centre will offer a certificate program in peace and development studies for candidates who plan to focus on peacebuilding in the Middle East and North Africa region. Very apt!!
