Posted: 10 October, 2015

The recipient of the 2015 Andrew Grene Postgraduate Scholarship in Conflict Resolution was celebrated on 29 October 2015 at a special event in Iveagh House, the headquarters of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The Conflict Resolution Unit of the Department has supported postgraduate research on conflict resolution and peacebuilding since 2008, to a total of over €350,000 to date.

This funding has supported ten postgraduate researchers conducting research on a range of issues relating to conflict resolution, post-conflict reconciliation, as well as the impact of gender, governance and education on building peace. In 2010, the Scholarship was named for an Irish UN worker, Andrew Grene, who died in the earthquake in Haiti.

The 2015 Andrew Grene Scholar is José Antonio Gutiérrez Danton, whose research in Colombia in the field of sociology and conflict is affiliated with the UCD School of Sociology, University College Dublin.

The Andrew Grene Postgraduate Scholarship in Conflict Resolution is run in partnership with the Irish Research Council, as part of the Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme.
