Caux Interns

Nearly every year since 1946, over 1300 participants from all over the world gather in Caux, Switzerland, attending one of the Initiatives of Change (IofC) international conferences held during the summer. A unique characteristic of these conferences is the community life.

The Caux Scholars Program aims to train young scholars in the fields of peacebuilding, transitional and restorative justice, and reconciliation. The 21 Scholars of the summer 2015 session were from 16 countries. The course is designed to enhance scholars’ already strong capacity to effect change in the world and in their communities. It helps to equip them to be effective advocates for change and positive voices as the world and international systems struggle with how best to achieve peace with justice. Scholars are also trained to be servant-leaders who put the interests of the community before their own.
