The Fund for Peace boasts a broad portfolio of programs, experience and expertise. Though diverse, all of our programs share a common denominator of seeking to prevent war and alleviate the conditions that cause conflict, ultimately resulting in sustainable security for all.
Conflict Early Warning & Assessment
The Fund for Peace produces The Failed States Index, a world-renowned ranking of the world's countries based on the pressures they experience. FFP also performs specific risk assessment, and in-depth national-, regional- and local-level analysis. Along with the Failed States Index, The Fund for Peace’s Conflict Assessment Software Tool (CAST) has been the foundation of FFP's work in civil society engagement and capacity building, allowing local communities to understand their own conflict environments and to take ownership over their solutions.
The Fund for Peace’s Threat Convergence program explores the linkages among the three biggest threats to global security: fragile states, the proliferation of WMD, and terrorism. The Fund for Peace aims to: raise the profile of the challenges in vulnerable, fragile and ungoverned regions on the nonproliferation agenda; explore how these regions may serve as enabling environments for nuclear terrorism; promote more coherent and strategic policy approaches to prevent nuclear terrorism and illicit nuclear trafficking; and become a hub for threat convergence-related analysis.
Sustainable Development and Sustainable Security
The Fund for Peace has long recognized that companies are an essential part of creating sustainable societies. Companies provide infrastructure development beyond their immediate operations and support local economies beyond direct employment opportunities. When operating in tense social and political environments, however, companies can easily be seen as part of the problem instead of part of the solution. FFP frequently supports companies in their development of the following activities: Human Rights & Security Polices; Conflict and Human Rights Assessments; Community Relations and Stakeholder; Engagement; and Monitoring and Reporting Mechanisms.
