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.
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: http://www.bonn.iz-soz.de/afb/afb/fb/pri-questionaire.pdf.
