Networks and Partners

Through its research activities, TAPRI is involved in many domain-specific organisations and networks.


The institute plays an important role in IPRA (International Peace Research Association) and EuPRA (European Peace Research Association). TAPRI is also a member of the OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions. Moreover, in the framework of the Mediterranean dialogue its partners are, for example, the Anna Lind Foundation and EuroMed Rights. Finally, TAPRI is also connected with the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) through the Standing Group on Politics and the Arts. In addition, the international Feminist Peace Research Network is coordinated by TAPRI researchers.

TAPRI is similarly connected with several crisis management, peacebuilding and mediation organisations and actors. In fact, it cooperates closely with the Finnish Crisis Management Centre (CMC); CMI Martti Ahtisaari Peace Foundation, and the Finn Church Aid. It has also established partnerships with the Wider Security Network (WISE)  and the Finnish 1325 Network.

Furthermore, TAPRI has ongoing ERASMUS exchange agreements with Ilia State University in Tbilisi (Georgia), with Moldova State University in Chisinau (Moldova), and with Sciences Po Lille (France).
