The Call for Proposals - Information, Violence, and Peacebuilding
The United States Institute of Peace recently released it's first Call for Proposals under the Communication for Peacebuilding (CfP) Priority Grant Program. Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Sudan are priority countries for funding that supports innovative peace-building projects involving research, the identification of promising models and effective practices, the development of practitioner resources and tools, the development and delivery of education, training and dialogue programs, and the production of films, radio programs and other media.
This is another great opportunity for individuals and organizations associated with the PulseWire Platform that are focused on improving their ability to leverage information flows that stem from violent incidents in ways that create more positive peace-building outcomes, especially for women and most vulnerable segments of populations.
All U.S. and foreign non-profit organizations and universities are eligible to apply for funding. Support cannot be provided to government agencies or to individuals working for government agencies.
