Vision, Mission & Core Values
AAIPSDS seeks to become a Pan-African Centre for the prevention and mitigation of violent conflict through trainings, research driven analysis, raising awareness and informing decision making at the national, regional and global level.
AAIPSDS provides an enabling platform for the intelligentsia and the larger community for intellectual growth through academic and professional trainings as well as strategic engagement in conflict transformation with commitment to excellence, integrity and the upholding of people-centered values in response to the needs of local and global communities.
Our philosophy is embedded in the search for Afro-centric approaches to resolving violent conflicts and other developmental challenges confronting the continent. Thus, the core philosophy of the Institute is succinctly encapsulated in the statement of the former United Nations Secretary Gen. Mr. Kofi Annan that “the prevention of conflict begins and ends with the promotion of human security and human development”
