Theme: Peace & Security

Peace and security are vital for the developmental aspirations for the African continent. Without safety for its people and the ability to manage diversity, Africa will struggle to achieve its full potential. Our research seeks to promote peace and security in Africa by focusing on the role of South Africa and other key African states as regional peace builders and norm setters in sub-regional, continental and global initiatives. It also focuses on the roles and responsibilities in this realm of key regional and sub-regional bodies.
