This week PRIF received a joint delegation from the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) of Addis Ababa University, the African Union (AU) and GIZ. The exchange between researchers and practitioners focused on ongoing research projects on the role of African regional organizations in building peace and preventing conflict in Africa as well as the AU’s continental early warning system. Presentations were given inter alia on the APSA Impact Report published by the IPSS as well as the project African Regional Organizations Seen from Below which Antonia Witt leads at PRIF. Given the close thematic linkages between these works the participants also identified areas for future cooperation.
We thank our guests for an exciting exchange and are looking forward to continue working together in the future.
