Kujenga Amani - Exchanging Ideas And Info On Peacebuilding In Africa

Kujenga Amani (Swahili for “building peace”) is a new forum for the exchange of ideas and information on peacebuilding in Africa. A project of the Carnegie Corporation-funded African Peacebuilding Network (APN), the website serves as a space for connecting researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and organizations working on diverse aspects of peacebuilding, a venue for conversations about the critical challenges confronting peacebuilding in conflict-affected regions of the continent, and a laboratory for probing the connections between African and global peace and security.

Kujenga Amani shares news on innovative research, from reviews of publications on African peacebuilding to reflections by scholars and policy actors to briefs on Africa-related peace initiatives, including reports on APN-supported research, fieldwork, and projects.

Launched in March 2012 with funding from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the APN promotes high-quality African research-based knowledge and informed commentary by African experts among critical constituencies in global centers of scholarly analysis, policy, and practical action, including, but not limited to, key policymakers at the United Nations, African Union, and other multilateral organizations, as well as regional and national policymaking institutions.
