Grant Amount: $50000, on 10/5/12
The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) is the first international nonprofit organization dedicated to the integration of policymaking in the areas of democracy, development, rule of law, and security in states emerging from armed conflict or authoritarian rule. The Institute aims to transform current practice away from piecemeal interventions toward more comprehensive solutions. Its core business will be to consider all, and not only some, of the essential policy elements for successful transition. It will house a multi-disciplinary and rapid response team of leading policy experts who will examine and advise on links between those elements in the context of specific transitions. A Compton grant will provide startup funds toward IFIT’s intended 2013 launch.
