Its Academy for Conflict Transformation offers a learning space for professional, international peace work. Through dialogue events, educational work and campaigns, forumZFD actively advocates civil peace policy. forumZFD is recognised by the German federal government as a member of the Civil Peace Service (CPS) consortium. It finances its work through public and private grants, donations and membership fees.

In Lebanon, forumZFD has been working since 2009. The 18 local and international staff members are working in three different thematic areas: Capacity Development, Community Mobilising and Dealing with the Past. Together with its partners, forumZFD jointly develops local capacities within civil society and supports their projects for non-violent conflict transformation.

  1. Conduct desk review of relevant Security and Risk Management documents owned by forumZFD;

  3. Design and development of SOPs that contain relevant and realistic SOPs for forumZFD staff to consult;
