Berghof Foundation / Peace Education Tuebingen

At the beginning of 2012, the Institute for Peace Education Tuebingen e.V. (ift) became part of the Berghof Foundation. The ift has cooperated closely with the Berghof Foundation over the past 35 years. It is through the continuous support of the Berghof Foundation (formerly the Berghof Stiftung fuer Konfliktforschung) that the ift and its activities have been able to develop so positively over the past decades. The ift's work in the field of peace education has been strengthened, and its long term future ensured, through the integration of the two organisations. The decision to do so was made at the ift members assembly.

In 2011, the Berghof Foundation undertook an internal reconstruction, resulting in the addition of peace education to the already established areas of peace and conflict research (Berghof Conflict Research) and peace support (Berghof Peace Support) under a single umbrella. Following the transfer on January 1st 2012, the ift has pursued its activities as part of the new Berghof Foundation (Berghof Peace Education). Management and staff have been taken over by the Berghof Foundation.
The non-profit association, the Institute for Peace Education e.V., has received a (partially) new name, as well as a new purpose: since 01/01/2012, it is the Friends of Berghof Peace Education / Institute for Peace Education e.V. Its purpose is to support Peace Education, within the Berghof Foundation framework, with ideas and initiatives.
The new Friends of Berghof Peace Education / Institute for Peace Education Tuebingen e. V., alongside the Berghof Peace Education team, will continue to be based in the Georg-Zundel-House in Tuebingen, where the work of the ift will continue and be expanded upon.
The Berghof Foundation aims to be operationally active, using third-party funding to develop its projects. Up to date information about the restructured Berghof Foundation, as well as its projects and activities, can be found at www.berghof-foundation.org.
