Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
we created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.but this the time to realize that we are one and we naturally interconnected with each other ,which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of breaths the source is same ,without any discrimination,religion, boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .we should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but for look after the wellbeing of all living life.

Yes, I was at UPEACE! How do you know it? I was in Costa Rica 2009-2010, but now I'm back in the Netherlands working on my thesis.
I'm from the western part of the Netherlands, close to Gouda (where the cheese comes from ;) Living in Utrecht now.
If you want to do a PhD, you could look into what they have in The Hague, or Leiden. Actually there was a PhD position open recently, but I think the deadline has passed:

Good luck!

Hi Dennis,
Thanks for your message. I've been to the southwestern part of Uganda, it was beautiful! My brother-in-law is from Kampala. Haven't been to the north yet.
In the Netherlands I was doing a MA Conflict Studies & Human Rights at Utrecht University, now I'm finishing my thesis for another MA I did in Costa Rica about Peace Education - much related to the projects you're doing in Uganda I think!
Take care,

Hi Dennis

Many thanks for adding me as friend and I feel proud to be a friend with you. You know, I have keen interest to work in Africa and get to know about the African culture. I think, we can share our views and thoughts through our relationship. Thanks again.
