Call for Submissions: Grants for Research in Conflict Studies

The Berghof Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2011-2012 grant cycle. The Foundation funds qualified individuals, organizations and institutions doing cutting-edge research and reflective practice in the field of conflict studies.

By focusing on the three thematic interests listed below, the Foundation wishes to support action research and reflective practice that identifies and elaborates fresh, creative paradigms for inclusive and integrated approaches that can enhance this field. These three themes are integral to structural peacebuilding processes, particularly the continued need to extend and develop multi-track approaches to conflict transformation.

1) Peacebuilding and reconciliation in post-war societies

2) Transformation processes of non-state armed groups into political actors

3) Interactions between state and non-state actors in conflict transformation processes
All interested applicants should visit the Berghof website for more information about the thematic interests and the application procedures (http://www.berghof-foundation.de/en/grants/funding-policy) and fill out the online application form. Please note that Berghof does not fund Master’s or PhD research. The deadline for applications is April 29, 2011.
