In accordance with its constitution, the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt conducts basic research, transforms the findings into practical courses of action and provides knowledge to the general public. This abides by the guiding principle of the Leibniz Association, theoria cum praxi, referring to the expectation that all staff members contribute to disseminating research-based knowledge to the political and public spheres. PRIF’s publication strategy targets a broad array of groups both within Germany and abroad.
Events organized by PRIF correspond to its mission of sharing knowledge with various target groups. The institute’s Annual Conference presents its current research to the academic public and panel discussions are occasions in which knowledge is shared with those who have academic interests in general.
