Supported Projects

The Berghof Foundation has a long-standing history of funding research and practice projects of like-minded partners in the field of conflict transformation.

Grant for Innovation in Conflict Transformation

The Grant for Innovation in Conflict Transformation was designed for innovative and state of the art projects in the field of conflict transformation. The thematic focus of this programme changed regularly, allowing us to address issues that we considered relevant to conflict transformation and to support projects that we hoped would provide innovative perspectives and impulses for the field and our work.
