Vision, Mission & Core Values

Our Vision

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.

Mission Statement

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.
