Invitation to apply for research grants

The Creating Safer Space network welcomes applications for research grants. We will fund 15 – 20 research projects to understand and support unarmed civilian protection and self-protection in the midst of violent conflict.

Our research focuses on conflicts in Colombia, South Sudan, Myanmar and the Philippines, but research on other Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) will also be supported.

Grants range from £20,000 – £100,000 GBP for projects of 6 to 16 months in duration. Projects must be led by organisations in the UK or in LMICs.

The application deadline is 15 April 2022. More information is available on our website:

Potential applicants are invited to attend one of the following information sessions, where we will provide more information about our grants and how to apply:
