The field of peace and security funding is incredibly diverse, both in terms of areas of focus and types of funders.
The hundreds of millions of dollars granted every year in this sector are helping to prevent and mitigate conflict and build stable, resilient societies across the globe. As illustrated by the sample grants in the website and report, the range of activities within this spectrum is wide—from promoting participatory governance in Burundi to more advocacy-based work, such as a campaign to reduce U.S. military spending. In addition to working on a variety of issues, funders in this field vary in type, regional focus, and average grant size.
