Research Working GroupsThe international research working groups set up by the FBA constitute an important part of our research-promoting activities.
FBA promotes research with the aim of contributing to evidence-based and effective peacebuilding. Therefore, FBA has International Research Working Groups whose members conduct research in geographical and thematic areas of relevance to FBA's work.
These groups act as a bridge between the research world and FBA's work, including by being available for advice, giving research presentations and publishing practitioner-oriented summaries of their research in FBA Research Briefs.
The members of FBA's International Research Working Groups are not employed by FBA and receive no compensation for the membership.
FBA makes an open call for new members every four years or more often, depending on our needs. FBA strives for equality and diversity in the composition of the groups, regarding the level of academic seniority as well as the researchers' methodological and epistemological starting points, as well as their and geographical origin.
International Research Working Groups 2023–2027
Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) have now launched new International Research Working Groups for the 2023–2027 period. Through the International Research Working Groups, 75 newly affiliated researchers will contribute with their expertise and research to FBA’s work through thematic, geographical, and methodological advice. By means of their wide-ranging expertise, the groups are expected to strengthen the agency's ability to respond proactively to emerging trends within peace and security.
