"Our alliance is characterized by a particular sensitivity to the challenges of peace, justice, and inclusive societies, stemming from each partner's national context and institutional development. Together as EUPeace, we have already made a tremendous achievement of growing together and learning from each other on our way to this funding, and we can't wait to launch our work as a European higher education institution now officially funded."
