• Policy and advocacy, as well as research, are the leading strategies among peace and security funders.

    While funders support a full range of strategies, policy work is the top strategic approach, representing 26 percent of all funding. Peace and security funders are almost twice as likely as other grantmakers to fund policy and advocacy, which suggests that funders believe policy levers are particularly important for effecting change in this space. In 2017, research and evaluation was the second most-funded strategy (16 percent) followed by public education (12 percent.)
