Berghof Foundation (BF)

Conflict research is a key area of expertise of the Berghof Foundation, where constructive procedures and models for dealing with conflicts, especially with ethnopolitical backgrounds, are explored. The Foundation’s research aims to occupy the middle-ground between theory and practice in providing analyses and concepts on tools and approaches to be utilized in the practice of conflict transformation. The Foundation’s focus is on the nature of social change and how it might be directed to the benefit of transition from violence to peace. We achieve our aims by a range of methods: our own original action research and collaborative conceptual work; commissioning related research by others; actively supporting the work of practitioner partners in the field; and offering policy advice and networking at the bilateral and multilateral levels.
