KAICIID Fellows Programme 2024 (Portugal)


International Fellows Programme, The International Dialogue Center (KAICIID), Lisbon, Portugal. Deadline: 21 May 2023.

The KAICIID International Fellows Programme is an ongoing capacity and professional development Programme that brings together religious leaders, educators, and interreligious dialogue practitioners from Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, and other religious backgrounds from around the world. The Programme offers training (in-person and online) in dialogue facilitation, intercultural communication and promoting social cohesion to people who advance and integrate their knowledge, skill, and experience within their respective communities. Since 2015, more than 500 individuals from more than 85 countries have participated in the Programme.

In 2024, an International and Latin American Cohorts will be launched. The Latin American cohort will be implemented in partnership with Religions for Peace – Latin America and the Caribbean.

The training modules equip the Fellows with an in-depth understanding of subjects such as Interreligious Dialogue, Conflict Management and Peacebuilding, Gender and IRD, Climate crises and IRD, Combating Hate Speech, and Common citizenship in addition to valuable skills like Project design, Fundraising and Monitoring and Evaluation. As part of their dialogue training, Fellows receive humble funding to implement grassroots interreligious dialogue projects in their own communities. During the training, Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in and organise real-time dialogue sessions, academic lectures, field visits to religious and cultural sites, and thematic conferences.
