The PRIF is one of the leading peace research institutes in Europe; it is based in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). The institute analyses the causes of international and national conflicts. In so doing, the PRIF combines basic research with knowledge transfer into politics, media and society. Its core themes are arms control and disarmament, conflicts around international norms, regimes and organisations, military and non-military interventions, peace consolidation, democratisation, radicalisation and political violence.
