BICC - Bonn International Centre for Conflict Studies gGmbH

BICC (Bonn International Centre for Conflict Studies) deals with a wide range of global topics in the field of peace and conflict research centring on the challenges of organized violence. These topics range from the (de-)mobilization of violent actors, arms exports and small arms control to the importance of organized violence in global migration flows and the use of natural resources.

Based on applied and transdisciplinary research, the Centre offers technical and policy advice and contributes to public debates. At the same time, its practical experience and the interaction with experts offer opportunities for further academic research, creating a unique ‘knowledge circle.

BICC is a non-university think tank with international staff. It was founded in 1994 and is a member of the Johannes-Rau-Research Community. BICC’s Director holds a chair for Peace and Conflict Research at Bonn University. The Center receives annual core funding by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Its donors come from German and international research institutions, German federal ministries and international organisations.
