The current database is an output of the Political Settlements Research Programme (PSRP), from a project funded by the UK Aid from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) for the benefit of developing countries.  However, the views expressed and information contained in it are not necessarily those endorsed by DFID, which can accept no responsibility for such views or information or for any reliance placed on them. 

The current database has also received some funding from UN Women, to feed into the Global Study and UN Secretary General’s Report on the fifteen-year review of UNSCR 1325, and from funding from the College of Arts and Humanities, Knowledge Transfer Fund, of the University of Edinburgh. The pilot phases of the project were funded at different times by: the Nuffield Foundation (2006) and the British Academy (2007). See more here.
