The Foreign and Commonwealth Office of Great Britain

2010 - Now

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is responsible for promoting British interests overseas and supporting British citizens and businesses around the globe.

The Conflict Pool, one of the Ministry’s funding programmes, supports activities that seek to reduce the number of people around the world whose lives are, or might be, affected by violent conflict.

The Pool funds discretionary conflict prevention, stabilisation and peacekeeping activities. It focuses on tackling threats at source in high-risk and fragile and conflict-affected countries where UK interests are most at stake and where the UK can have an impact.

Through its Conflict Pool programme, the Foreign Office supports BIRN Hub’s Regional Reporting on Transitional Justice Issues Project.
