dc.description AFRICAN PEACEBUILDING NETWORK APN LECTURE SERIES: NO. 4. Keynote address by Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, Vice Chancellor and Professor of the Humanities and Social Sciences, United States International University-Africa, Nairobi, Kenya en_US
dc.description.abstract About the Program: Launched in March 2012, the African Peacebuilding Network (APN) supports independent African research on conflict-affected countries and neighboring regions of the continent, as well as the integration of high-quality African research-based knowledge into global policy communities. In order to advance African debates on peacebuilding and promote African perspectives, the APN offers competitive research grants and fellowships, and it funds other forms of targeted support, including strategy meetings, seminars, grantee workshops, commissioned studies, and the publication and dissemination of research findings. In doing so, the APN also promotes the visibility of African peacebuilding knowledge among global and regional centers of scholarly analysis and practical action and makes it accessible to key policymakers at the United Nations and other multilateral, regional, and national policymaking institutions. About the Series: The APN Lecture Series provides an avenue for influential think¬ers, practitioners, policy makers, and activists to reflect on and speak to the critical issues and challenges facing African peace¬building. This publication series documents lectures given on the platform of the African Peacebuilding Network (APN) program, and its institutional partners. These lectures provide an analy¬sis of processes, institutions, and mechanisms for, as well as the politics of peacebuilding on the continent, and contribute towards broadening debates and knowledge about the trajectories of con¬flict and peace in conflict-affected African countries and regions. The APN Lecture series seeks to address knowledge gaps in Af¬rican peace and security, including its links to local, national, and global structures and processes. These publications also provide critical overviews and innovative reflections on the state of the field, including new thinking critical to knowledge production and dissemination in overlooked or emerging areas of African peace¬building. en_US
