The Robert Bosch Stiftung collaborates with and supports key actors such as Peace Direct that share the Foundation’s understanding that true local ownership is the foundation of sustainable peace and that want to enhance the power and agency of local actors in conflict affected contexts. Peace Direct is an international peacebuilding organization dedicated to transforming the international peacebuilding system so that power and resources shift to local actors. Peace Direct supports local peacebuilding efforts in thirteen countries worldwide, as well as undertaking research, advocacy, convening and communication activities to amplify the voices and perspectives of local peacebuilders, influence policy and practice and bridge the gap between local and global actors. The Foundation provides Peace Direct with a multi-year core grant to play a catalytic role in the global peacebuilding system. Additionally, we exchange learnings and seek complementarities, where conducive, towards shared goals to increase our collective impact.
