Peace Research Information Unit Bonn (PRIUB)

The Arbeitsstelle Friedensforschung Bonn(AFB)/Peace Research Information Unit Bonn (PRIUB) is a national and international advice, information, and service centre covering the whole field of research into peace and conflict. It puts scholars and institutions in touch with one another; it provides information on the organizations, concerns, and findings of peace and conflict research; it organizes discussion groups and work groups on specific topics; it provides those wishing to set up projects with advice on both technicalities and subject matter; and it provides back-up in the presentation of research findings and academic publications. The AFB/PRIUB produces a twice-yearly newsletter "AFB-INFO", in German and English, and occasional publications in the "AFB-TEXTE"-series. These deal with basic issues of peace and conflict research and peace education. The AFB also acts as a channel of communication between academic research and practical politics.

AFB Peace Research Index

The AFB Peace Research Index is based on a continuous survey of institutions and individual scholars involved in peace and conflict research. It lists over 350 organizations/institutions, with details of their areas of concern and useful information about their infrastructure. The appropriate questionnaire can be downloaded at:
