Sean McBride Fellowship
News31 October 2018
The Government of Ireland is working with the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation in Namibia to provide capacity building in the area international relations / conflict resolution.
Sean McBride was a former Minister for External Relations in Ireland and also served as the UN High Commissioner for Namibia during an important period in Namibia's history pre-independence.
In celebration and memory of the contribution of Sean McBride, and towards deepening the links between Ireland and Namibia, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade – through the Embassy of Ireland in Lusaka – is offering one fellowship for Masters Degree level study in Ireland in related courses.
This scholarship has been established as part of a broader range of initiatives and engagements to further strengthen collaboration and cooperation with the Government of Namibia across a range of mutual interests.
