We support inclusive dialogue and transitions that allow peaceful engagement in politics.
The Berghof Foundation carries out a range of activities in Asia, from supporting inclusive dialogue toward peaceful settlements of conflicts, to research on combatants' experiences and support in their transitions toward peaceful political engagement.
- Afghanistan: Fostering peace negotiations
The overall goal of Berghof’s work in this region is to support Afghan-driven efforts to resolve the protracted conflict and to restore resilient and sustainable peace.
Current research and learning projects
- From female combatants to post-war democratic leaders
Using filmmaking as an accessible and evocative research method, female ex-combatants document how they experience reintegration, post-war development and leadership.
- Security doctrines in a changing world
The project aims to foster global South-North exchange and to better reflect global South perspectives in International Relations theory, by providing insights into modes of South-South cooperation.
- Supporting women in RLMs in peace processes and transitions
Through capacity building, this project supports women in resistance and liberation movements to enhance their peace negotiation skills and opportunities for post-war democratic leadership.
- Incremental inclusivity in peace process design
This project analyses the incremental inclusion of non-state armed groups and societal actors during different stages of a peace process.
