The Berghof Foundation is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organisation supporting people in conflict in their efforts to achieve sustainable peace. For 50 years, we have worked to bring people in conflict together and enable them to find ways to live peacefully. We engage with all relevant state and non-state actors to support dialogue, mediation and negotiation processes.
Grounded in a nexus of practice, learning and research, our work spans many regions and societies, encompassing conflicts between and within states, whether new or entrenched. We also work to address underlying social grievances which, if ignored, only deepen divisions and inflame tensions. Our work is underpinned by the principles of partnership, inclusivity, sustainability and local ownership.
The Berghof Foundation is known internationally for its longstanding and innovative work in conflict regions, its cutting-edge research, and its peace education work. We have worked in over 50 countries to promote peace, research trends and solutions, and enable conflict parties to move toward sustainable peace.
