The Peace & Recovery (P&R) Program is focused on prevention, mitigation, responses to, and recovery strategies for most forms of social and political violence as well as humanitarian emergencies, including:

  • International and internal wars
  • State-supported violence and repression, from mass killings to police brutality
  • Electoral violence
  • Riots, protests, strikes, and other collective action (violent and nonviolent)
  • Intergroup violence, including ethnic and sectarian violence
  • Terrorism
  • “Recovery” responses after violence or destruction, such as after civil war or natural disaster

P&R's fourth call for proposals is now open. Exploratory proposals are due April 30, 2019, while all other proposals are due June 14, 2019. Application instructions can be found here. Applicants are not required to have submitted an Expression of Interest in order to submit a full proposal.

Further information about the program's core research themes and questions can be found in our Guiding Principles and Funding Priorities document. Applicants can also learn about the program's newest research focus in our Homicide in Latin America and the Caribbean document. Please email peace@poverty-action.org with any questions.
