Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research

TFF
Lund, Sweden

This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

TFF is a network think tank with 80 associates around the world, two staff members at its headquarters, and volunteers based on Gandhian principles. Programs include conflict understanding and mitigation, alternative security, nonviolence, UN and the world order, peace research, education, advocacy, postwar reconciliation, and field work. TFF is also involved in providing lectures and conflict skills training as well as innovative theories and practical solutions. TFF has worked with the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia since 1991, Georgia since 1993, Burundi since 1999, and Iraq since 2002. It publishes a free newsletter, the TFF PressInfo and Peace Browser; Peace Tips; reports; and books. Its website, the Transnational News Navigator, has a large link section as well as 350 news sources. Other areas covered are nationalism and war, social science, international relations, strategic issues, foreign affairs, war and the media, human rights, third world studies, civic societies.
