Joint solutions to global challenges 

Promoting peace and stability — and thereby alleviating human hardship — was of special concern to Robert Bosch. Through our efforts, we have implemented this legacy in the International Relations programs since the Foundation’s establishment.

In today’s world, finding common answers to global challenges is key to peaceful coexistence. To this end, it is the purpose of our focus area International Understanding and Cooperation to identify and support effective solutions, both within and between societies. Starting in 2020, the Foundation will focus on the following topics: Peace, Climate Change, and Migration. The Foundation also has the mandate to explore the topic of Inequality.

What we focus on


What creates sustainable peace?

Climate Change

We promote a regenerative world, in which life and livelihoods are sustained by a just transition of land use.


How can we shape migration policy, governance, and practice through international cooperation in order to make it humane, far-sighted, and sustainable?


How can inequalities be addressed and reduced?
