Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research

Training & partners over the years

Teaching and training

Most TFF Associates combine their research and field experiences with teaching courses, lecturing and more hands-on training.

If you are interested in finding resource persons for your institution, training program, panel discussion or conference, TFF can help you identify those who will fit your needs. Simply write to us.

TFF Associates do single lectures, longer educational programs, workshops, brainstorms, panel debates, media interviews and programs for public education, and in-house training programs. Many of them also regularly teach MA and postgraduate courses. We have experience in teaching and training where peace reigns as well as in the midst of war zones.

While TFF is happy to suggest professional resource persons who might suit your needs, we do not offer courses of our own. See below some of the numerous partners we have worked with in teaching and training.


Networking means building partnerships. TFF is a network of about 60 Associates and, in many instances, also their organizations. The Foundation has been networking with numerous others over the years - some partnerships are more general and lasting, some limited to a project, training, a book project, on-the-ground activity, etc.
