Ashoka Fellow

Peacebuilders International
This description of Eva Marszewski's work was prepared when Eva Marszewski was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Through Peacebuilding Circles and mediation, and conflict management training, Eva Marszewski is equipping high-risk communities to preventing violence and other anti-social behaviors from being first addressed through the judicial system. Eva is thus averting future juvenile delinquency as well as empowering communities to cope with problems as they appear. She is engaging with the court system, police, and schools to entrench this user-friendly and highly preventative tool and is building ordinary citizens’ capacity to help youth in conflict grow into healthy, productive, civically-minded adults.
