In recent years thousands of undocumented migrants have died in shipwrecks at the coasts of Greece, Spain and Italy in their effort to enter the EU. This brief draws on field research on the Greek island of Lesbos, one of the key entry points of migrants to the EU that has seen repeated incidents of deadly shipwrecks. The note underlines the gaps and flaws in the policies pursued by local, national and EU authorities. Research shows that although several local agencies engage with the problem,…See More

I am Yadab your friend of Peace and Collaborative Network from Surkhet,Nepal. Hope you know me. I am currently working with UNESCO office in Kathmandu.It is my pleasure to get in touch with you after long time. Today, I would like to inform you that I have recently got an opportunity to study on Master of Advanced Studies in Peace and Conflict Transformation in World Peace Academy Basel, Switzerland with 50% (7500 CHF) scholarship for tuition fees. Due to my low income I could not able to pay the tuition fee for the studies. I am seeking the only 50% tuition fees (7500CHF) from different source and I have told from the Academy to pay the 50% amounts with in three weeks which remains only two weeks up to now. As you know there are so many agencies working in peace and conflict but most of them are very reluctant to invest in human resource development. So it is quite difficult to obtain such bursary for courses. If any of the organization could provide this small amount for such good course it would be long term investment of Nepal's human resource development for Peace and conflict in post conflict development of Nepal.
Hoping to get some suggestion from you .
It is great to hear about you.I think you are enjoing in Nepalgunj.I am also from that region .I spent 1 year in Nepalgunj with UNMIN.I am from Surkhet district now working with UNHCR in Eastern Nepal.
Hope we will be in touch.
