JRCT’s Peace and Security Programme Accepting Applications for November Deadline
The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) is accepting applications from UK not-for-profit organisations whose work involves challenging the legitimacy of violence as a tool for conflict response and promoting human rights at all levels of society.
The Trust wishes to prioritise charitable work in the following areas:
- Challenging militarism – work which holds the UK government to account for the human costs of militarised conflict response and exposes the economic drivers of war, particularly the arms trade.
- Scrutiny of counter-terrorism measures in the context of human rights – challenging abuses of state power and promoting greater transparency in relation to government counter-terrorism policy.
- Building support for alternative approaches to defence and security – promoting understanding of non-violence in social change and addressing the risk of nuclear weapons.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, JRCT also wishes to support work which scrutinises the UK government’s security and counter-terrorism policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funding is at the discretion of the Trustees.
The next deadline for applications is 29 November 2021.
