Research Working Groups
FBA established the first research working groups in 2005. Today there are five groups, composed of about 120 eminent scholars attached to leading international universities and institutes. The research working groups specialize in:
- Peace operations
- Conflict prevention
- Women, peace and security (1325)
- Rule of law
- Security sector reform
The members of the research working groups form a unique network and enable a close cooperation between the FBA and the academic world. FBA organizes annual workshops for the researchers to meet and discuss their studies, methods and results before publication. These meetings also enable the establishment of contacts that are important for future joint research projects. In addition, the members of the research working groups can apply for grants from the FBA each year.
