The Institute for Peace and Dialogue tries to work to give a chance of participation to people from outside the OECD (through full or partial coverage of the cost of participation). Independently on our efforts, the results depend heavily on our donators’ generosity. It is worth to check the possibility of obtaining refinancing from a national or another grant programme.
