An international funder is striving to move peace research forward

Top tips

  • The foundation is open to projects that would not attract funding elsewhere, including qualitative, monodisciplinary approaches.
  • Students and independent scholars are welcome to apply.
  • Bids should use suitable methodologies and display awareness of the sensitivities relevant to conflict or post-conflict environments.
  • ‘Cultural competence’—being able to interact effectively and sensitively with people involved in the research—is important.

Unlike defence research, the interdisciplinary field of peace research is not awash with funding. The dedicated International Peace Research Association Foundation is therefore a highly valuable resource.
