United States Institute of Peace: Seeking Applications for Reassessing Peacebuilding in Uncertain Times

Deadline: 17 March 2017

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is currently inviting innovative proposals from U.S.-based academic institutions, research and practitioner organizations, and others for collaborative projects that reflect on, help clarify, and flesh out one or more key issues and propose new approaches and responses to peacebuilding challenges for its program entitled “Reassessing Peacebuilding in Uncertain Times”.

USIP encourages proposals that draw on creative, multidisciplinary research and engage a diverse set of specialists from different institutions in a conference, workshop or roundtable series or other focused, deliberative program to:

  • better understand the evolving international order;
  • in that context, explore one or more of the challenges emanating from fragile states and assess the implications for efforts to prevent, mitigate and manage violent conflict and promote peacebuilding;
  • suggest ways forward to achieve those goals, be it actionable policy recommendations, specific guidance about new field program design, or ideas for deeper, more focused policy-oriented research.

Competitive proposals will draw upon and engage scholars, policy specialists, practitioners, including those with on-the-ground peacebuilding experience, and journalists in the deliberative process. USIP also strongly encourages proposals that engage or are from specialists at minority and historically underserved institutions that bring critical perspectives to the deliberations.

Funding Information

  • USIP expects to make 2-3 grants in the general range of $60,000 – $80,000 each with a general implementation period of 10 – 18 months.
  • Award notifications will be made by mid-September 2017.

Eligibility Criteria
