What does it mean to become a member of the Peace Studies Fund e.V.?

The Peace Studies Fund is organized as a friend’s association under German law. It is a platform for everybody who wants to contribute to more solidarity within the peace students‘ community. It is headed by a Board of Directors, that represents the interest of all members.

As a general rule, there will be a Member’s Assembly once a year in which important decisions are taken together. We plan to organize the Member’s Assembly online, in order to allow participation independent from one’s location. Of course, participation is voluntary.

The Member’s Assembly can issue a member fee regulation. Currently, there is no member fee.

Each member possesses the same active and passive right to vote in the Member’s Assembly. Decisions are taken by majority principle.

The Members‘ Assembly is among others

  • electing the members of the Board of Directors,
  • consulting about current status and planning,
  • giving permission of the economic plan presented by the Board of Directors,
  • adopting the annual report presented by the Board of Directors
  • voting on changes of the Articles of the Association and of a dissolution of the association.

Members support the objectives of the association through active participation, by accepting small or continuous tasks or by supporting the association on a considerable scale.

For example:

  • You want to organize a charity event such as a lecture, a dinner, a party?
  • Do you know about potential donors? Family, friends, acquaintances that might want to contribute?
  • You know a foundation, a public donor or another institution that supports projects such as ours? Help us with your hint!
  • You would like to help writing applications for funding? You have some experience and want to proofread our applications?
  • You want to regularly donate an amount?

Last but not least, the frame of an association allows us to visibly build a community of solidarity and connectivity. Your support, be it as small or big in terms of time or resources, is valuable in the sense that it brings us closer together in the common wish to foster diversity and solidarity within the Master’s Program in Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation at the University of Innsbruck.
