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.
