Message from the Founder
The establishment of Abdulsalami Abubakar Institute for Peace and Sustainable Development Studies is a response to the enormous challenges confronting Africa in the 21st century. The hopes and aspirations of Africans achieving sustainable rapid transformation of its political, social and economic institutions lies in the transformation of conflict that have bedeviled the continent. Abdulsalami Abubakar Institute for Peace and Sustainable Development Studies is set to provide the platform and the missing links which led to state failure, violence and arms proliferation, failure of peace negotiations and lack of human security in Africa through its programmes. The Institute has a promising future to become a centre of excellence with the support of our partners at National, Regional and International levels.
