The Peace Million

The Peace Million is a Swedish government grant that finances projects that focus on peace, security policy, disarmament, and conflict resolution or its management.

The aim of the grant is to strengthen the voice of civil society in these areas. The FBA has administered the Peace Million since 2005.

Who can apply for the Peace Million?

Only Swedish NGOs are entitled to submit claims for the grant. Applications are considered in the autumn of each year. The main concentration is on building public awareness in Sweden, though some projects may be undertaken in cooperation with international partners.

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.

    Telltale signs of meaningful interventions for peacebuilding and development

    Starting off as a research initiative, FBA’s work on exploring linkages between the rule of law and public administration in peacebuilding and development gradually scaled up to one of the largest projects that the agency is implementing bilaterally, the project on local self-government and rule of law in Ukraine. Within the span of several years it has, quite entrepreneurially, engaged with a variety of actors that have jointly been working on promoting rights’ based serviced delivery ... Read entire post »

    Returning to the field in a time of uncertainty

    For those of us who have worked abroad for FBA over the years, there is a certain familiar pattern one gets used to in this very particular world. Times of excitement, challenge, and high activity come with a new assignment in an international mission or position in the field, followed by periods of rest and recovery after a completed task, followed by patience (and impatience) waiting and hoping for new opportunities to continue one’s career.
