1325 Grants

Do you represent an organization or a foundation working to promote women's participation in issues concerning peace and security? If so, you are eligible to apply for project grants from the FBA.

UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 and the following resolutions 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2016 and 2122 all highlight the importance of women’s participation and protection in conflict and post-conflict situations. Each year the FBA grants funds to projects that support the implementation of those resolutions, with a specific focus on projects that promote women’s equal participation in issues concerning peace and security. The projects should have a strong local ownership and contribute to support capacity-building for women’s organizations and/or local women’s groups.

Numerous organizations apply for the funds each year, and the FBA cannot guarantee the success of a specific application. Neither funds to end or continue projects that have been granted funding earlier, nor funds for projects that are undertaken during the course of more than 15 months, can be guaranteed. The FBA evaluates all applications and publicly announces the allocation of funds every year. The selection of accepted applications is strictly criteria-based.

When to apply?

Funds are granted once a year. This year's application period has closed.

Who can apply?

Swedish and international organizations and foundations working with projects meeting our criteria may apply.

How to apply?

Apply here. Please read the instructions thoroughly before posting an application.

Responsive and Responsible: Politically Smart Rule of Law Reform in Conflict and Fragile States

There is a long-standing recognition that rule of law is an essential element in achieving sustainable peace and development. In recent years it has gained even more prominence in policy discourse and as a core ingredient of broad-based international commitments, with the Sustainable Development Goals and in particular Goal 16 as a clear indicator for where we are headed. Yet, what has been lacking in rule of law reform, or at least it has been only marginally represented, is a political approach to address the underlying causes of problems and obstacles to rule of law.

    On November 8 2005, Liberians elected Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to be the first female president of an African country.

    Strengthening forces for peace through experience-sharing

The efforts for a formal and sustainable peace process are insufficient and face numerous obstacles. Violent battles between government and Taliban forces have resulted in new districts falling under Taliban power. Attacks by other groups, loyal to the Islamic State, are increasing in numbers.

    Despite this, there are still strong forces for peace in Afghanistan. ... Read entire post »

    Technical problems, political fixes: assessing rule of law in local governance in Ukraine

    I take public sector reform challenges in the post-Soviet space quite personally, with many first-hand Kafkaesque experiences from growing up in the ‘east’. So when the opportunity came about to work for the FBA on improving service delivery from a rights-based perspective in Ukraine, I struggled to think of alternatives to the complicated procedures people often have to go through when dealing with public authorities. It made me wonder whether the system can ever truly change.
