SASAKAWA PEACE FOUNDATION (SPF): Non traditional Security Issues

Deadline: 
Monday, April 1, 2019 - 00:00
Discipline: 
Social Sciences
Region: 
Asia

THIS IS AN INTERNAL DEADLINE ONLY. THE 2018 DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS HAS PASSED. THE LAST DEADLINE WAS ON OCTOBER 30, 2018. PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE UPDATES.  

The concept of nontraditional security refers to security against threats that cannot be addressed by the military-centered security systems of the past. Although this concept is not yet well defined, SPF recognizes the urgent need to deal with nontraditional threats that pose serious dangers in Asia, such as avian influenza and other infectious diseases, as well as natural disasters. While efforts must, of course, be made at the national level, SPF contributes to the establishment of effective crisis-management systems for Asia and other developing regions by supporting fieldwork, research, and experimental initiatives at the private nonprofit-sector level. 

Deadline: As projects eligible for SPF grants begin on April 1, in principle, the deadline for applications (to arrive at SPF) is the last day of October the previous year. However, applications may be submitted at any time.
