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.


Current projects

  • 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.
