The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination has been awarded a two-year, $290,000 grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York’s International Peace and Security Program. The grant is the fourth Carnegie Corporation grant awarded to LISD since 2002 in support of the Institute’s project work on Afghanistan. “LISD is extremely grateful to the Carnegie Corporation for its continued support of our work on Afghanistan and the region,” said Wolfgang Danspeckgruber, Director of LISD and lead project investigator.  “The funding allows LISD to make a positive contribution to the process of building by, for, and with Afghans an Afghanistan that is stable, provides for the economic and human security needs of its people, and has a transparent, responsive, and honest government.” 

The program is funded through the generosity of H.S.H. Prince Hans Adam II of Liechtenstein, and is directed by Wolfgang Danspeckgruber, lecturer in public and international affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
