A forum to encourage new thinking and research in the field of peacebuilding and proactive security measures, while unveiling Africa’s 100 Impactful Leaders.

The peacebuilding landscape in Africa has shifted dramatically both in responses to the changing dynamics of conflict as well as the emergence of new conflict actors on the continent. In many cases, the changing landscape of conflict has thrown up challenges that exceed the initial scope and provisions of existing peacebuilding norms and frameworks.
