Mapping innovative approaches to conflict prevention in Africa


International attention on effective conflict prevention is increasing, but despite this, we still don’t know enough about how specific projects work in practice. There are also few repositories of research and best practice on conflict prevention, and knowledge sharing among those in the field is limited.

This seminar will share findings from research on innovative conflict prevention projects in six African countries. Lessons for strengthening conflict prevention at the African Union and Regional Economic Communities and Regional Mechanisms will also be discussed.

This seminar is co-hosted with the Igarapé Institute.
