Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust: Peace And Security Grant Program

Deadline: 4 September 2017

Through its Peace And Security Grant Program, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust wishes 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: JRCT are interested in funding work which:

  • 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
  • promotes conscientious objection to military service as a globally recognised and applied human right.

Scrutiny of counter-terrorism measures in the context of human rights and peacebuilding: JRCT are interested in funding work which:

  • promotes greater transparency and accountability in relation to government counter-terrorism policy
  • challenges state abuses of power in relation to counter-terrorism
  • advocates policy responses to the use of terror tactics which address their underlying causes
  • challenges the use of counter-terrorism policies which foment conflict or undermine opportunities to build peace.

Building support for alternative approaches to defence and security: JRCT are interested in funding work which:

  • articulates and builds support for models of defence and security which address the root causes of conflict and injustice, and which are based on non-violence, dialogue and mediation, human rights and environmental sustainability
  • addresses the risks of nuclear weapons and articulates options for non-nuclear security
  • offers ideas and action on the re-shaping of violent masculinities which underpin the military system
  • promotes the understanding and effective practice of non-violence in social change
