Who we are

The Berghof Foundation is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organisation that supports efforts to prevent political and social violence, and to achieve sustainable peace through conflict transformation. Established by Professor Georg Zundel in 1971, members of the Zundel family in their roles as shareholders and trustees remain dedicated to the organisation’s long-term development. Based in Germany, the NGO is run by a diverse team working closely with partners in selected regions. An international Board of Trustees supports its work.
