2012 Fellowship Programme

31 October 2012

From 2 to 30 October 2012, UIL was pleased to organise the second annual CONFINTEA VI Fellowship Programme . This year, the six participating fellows were from Africa, Latin America and Asia. They were senior specialists in adult education or adult literacy from Tanzania (Ms Watugulu), Malawi (Mr Mkunga), Namibia (Ms Tjikuua), Mexico (Ms Mendoza Ortega), Indonesia (Mr Sawung) and Myanmar (Ms San), all of whom worked within their respective ministries. Their main research aim was to devise strategies for the implementation of the Belém Framework for Action in their countries.

The four-week Fellowship Programme comprises a mix of leading thematic presentations by UIL colleagues and external experts, peer-group work and individual study time, during which the Fellows will be able to benefit from the rich resources of the Institute’s Documentation Centre. The agenda is organised into seven thematic modules based on key components of the Belém Framework for Action.  At the close of the Fellowship, each of the fellows presented the results of their research, a draft proposal for implementing the Belém Framework for Action in his or her respective country.

UIL wishes to thank the Fellows for their hard work and insights during the four weeks, and pledges to monitor the implementation of the proposals in the countries.
