Civil society organizations are important social actors. They spread knowledge and shape public opinion, teach the importance of democracy, bring communities together and can help people make their voices heard, especially marginalized groups. They defend human rights, not the least in conflict-affected countries.
FBA is commissioned by the Swedish government to grant yearly funds to Swedish civil society organizations working with peace and security, in Sweden and globally.
