Indeed, the significant impact of policy addressing challenging societal conditions and other social problems emphasises the importance of think tanks, as well as national, regional, and international policy-making bodies. To achieve the “Africa We Want,” a strong partnership between think tanks, peace centres, and policy-making bodies is required.
AAIPSDS is committed to ensuring that its activities significantly impact policy and practice. AAIPSDS would achieve this mandate by:
- Building partnerships with allied and relevant peace centres and policy-making bodies and undertaking research training and other activities to impact policy and practice.
- Organize policy dialogue series on issues that have a wide range of impacts on sustainable peace and development
- Publication of policy briefs on diverse issues that would positively impact national stability and development
- Seeks for external grants to support AAIPSDS’s strategic policy advocacy and practice programmes
