The German Association for Peace and Conflict Studies (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Friedens- und Konfliktforschung e.V. – AFK) is a scientific association of peace researchers and institutions from various disciplines, particularly from German-speaking countries. Founded in 1968, the AFK aims to promote research that contributes to a deeper understanding of the causes of war and peace and thus also provides a basis for a political practice oriented towards long-term peace. Currently, the AFK has more than 270 members. The association is represented by the Executive Board.
