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 our website for more information about the thematic interests and the application procedures (http://www.berghof-foundation.de/en/grants/funding-policy) and fill out our on-line application form. Please note that we do not fund Master’s or PhD research. The deadline for applications is April 29, 2011.
Thank you for this information. I will most certainly take the opportunity of applying.

Good to learn about this grant. Is it meant for research in the academic field or the grants are for implementing conflict resolution activities. I would be happy to get more details since I am interested in it.
My organisation, Centre for Dialogue and Research International, will certainly put up an application for this grant.
