Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law (KPSRL) - Knowledge Management Fund (KMF)
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofits organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and individual researchers for innovative ideas and projects that enhance the field of security and law. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support events, research, and innovative programs that contribute to the field of Security & Rule of Law (SRoL) particularly in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Settings (FCAS).
The Knowledge Management Fund (KMF) is the Knowledge Platform’s fund to support activities arising from its network. The small-scale grants awarded by the Fund offer a low barrier to entry for pioneering, agile and experimental proposals. The aim of the Fund is to strengthen policies and programs, particularly in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Settings (FCAS), by diversifying thinking and evidence in the Security & Rule of Law (SRoL) field.
The KMF is a €300,000 annual fund that awards grants of up to €15,000 for events, research ideas and innovative projects that contribute to high-quality knowledge and learning in the SRoL field, and the subsequent use of that knowledge and learning in programming and policy.
The 2020 KMF Thematic Headline is Harnessing Potential, with subthemes focused on Change & Learning Processes and Examining & Improving Policy. The Thematic Headline and the subthemes are provided to help KMF applicants frame their proposals and focus on outcomes. They also reflect the specific added value of the KMF: addressing emerging priority areas, seizing opportunities to strengthen SRoL policy and practice, and feeding research outcomes and original ideas into the SRoL sector. They are purposefully broad to leave as much scope as possible for applicants to generate knowledge in their specialist thematic and geographic areas.
The KMF is divided into three strands: Events, Research, and Innovation. This helps applicants maintain focus on the method by which they try to achieve their aim of seizing opportunities, harnessing potential, and producing original insights to improve the quality and use of knowledge in SRoL programming and policy.
Applicants’ submissions will be assessed on their alignment with the above headline. Applicants may freely choose their topical focus within the Security and Rule of Law (SRoL) field: (inter alia) human security, justice & security sector reform, security governance, conflict & climate change, informal justice, political governance, access to justice, violence prevention, transitional justice, peacekeeping, peace processes and political representation.
