Peace Research Institute Frankfurt

Frankfurt/Main, Germany

Partner 18 (PRIF)

The Peace Research Institute Frankfurt was founded in 1970 as an independent foundation. With more than 60 members of staff PRIF is the largest and oldest peace research institute in Germany. PRIF’s work is directed towards identifying the causes of violent international and internal conflicts, carrying out research into the conditions necessary for peace, understood as a process of decreasing violence and increasing justice, and spreading the concepts of peace. Within the framework of its political counselling, research results are converted into practically orientated options for action that find their way into the public debate. PRIF has a number of experts on EU foreign and security policy.
