Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 18 December 2017

The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust is seeking applications for its Peace and Security Programme to support a transition towards:

  • the use of ‘soft’, rather than ‘hard’ power as a first line of response to conflict within our society and around the world
  • the de-legitimisation of violence as a tool for responding to conflict, securing interests or projecting power
  • a culture of human rights and non-violent problem-solving, promoted at all levels of society.

Funding Priorities

JRCT wishes to prioritise support for charitable work on the following issues:

  • Challenging militarism
    • highlights and holds the UK government to account for the human, economic, environmental and security costs of militarised responses to conflict
    • scrutinises and challenges the use of new technology for warfare
    • exposes and challenges the economic drivers of war, especially the arms trade
    • highlights and challenges the culture and values of militarism in the UK

    • challenges state abuses of power in relation to counter-terrorism
