Logo PRIF / HSFK

The Peace Research Institute in Frankfurt (HSFK/ PRIF) is the largest as well as the oldest peace research institute in Germany. Founded in 1970, PRIF´s work is directed towards carrying out research on peace and conflict, with a special emphasis on issues of arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament. Between 1987 and 2002, PRIF organized a network of European researchers in this field, training young academics in some countries lacking any non-proliferation expertise. PRIF researchers have a long-standing experience in political advice and consulting, having served, inter alia, in German delegations to NPT, CTBT, CWC, BWC, Ottawa Convention and SALW gatherings, in the UN Advisory Council on Disarmament Matters and in IAEA Expert Groups. Today, PRIF’s arms control division covers chemical, biological, nuclear and radiological weapons, small and light weapons, conventional weapons as well as mines and cluster ammunition
