Research Grants

Each year, FBA grants funds to the members of our international research working groups, for research projects within the field of peace, security and development. The grants aim to promote empirical, policy-relevant scientific research.

Since 2005 the FBA has supported approximately 150 research projects, among them data collections, surveys and experimental studies. The research grants have enabled the publication of a large number of scientific papers, books and articles of relevance to international policy development.

Funds are granted once a year and members of FBA’s research working groups can apply. The applications are evaluated by a committee composed of senior researchers and practitioners.

The Taliban take control in Afghanistan

The conditions for a political solution to the conflict in Afghanistan have changed drastically since the Taliban seized control over Kabul on 15 August 2021. Since 2019, FBA, along with The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), has supported the Afghan civil society in vocalising their concerns in the peace process. The conditions for continuing these efforts are currently unclear. – We are now focusing on supporting those of our partners who are in direct need of help, says Cecilia Hull Wiklund, project manager for FBA’s work with the Swedish development cooperation strategy for Afghanistan.
