Vision, Mission & Core Values
Abdulsalami Abubakar Institute for Peace and Sustainable Development Studies (AAIPSDS) aims to provide an excellent platform for intellectual growth and capacity for stability and development of national and global communities.
Our mission is to provide an enabling platform for the intelligentsia and the larger community for intellectual growth through excellent graduate and professional education with commitment to excellence, integrity and the upholding of people-centered values in response to the needs of local and global communities.
The Abdulsalami Abubakar Institute and Sustainable Development Studies (AAIPSDS) is a response to the need for innovative, effective and efficient Afro-centric conflict transformation and development methodologies. Thus, the core philosophy of the Institute is succinctly encapsulated in the statement of the former United Nations Secretary General, Mr. Kofi Annan that “the prevention of conflict begins and ends with the promotion of human security and human development”.
