See on Scoop.itRESEARCH CAPACITY-BUILDING IN AFRICA

“The mission of the University for Peace is to provide humanity with an international institution of higher education for peace with the aim of promoting among all human beings a spirit of understanding, tolerance, and peaceful coexistence, to stimulate cooperation among peoples, and to help lessen obstacles and threats to world peace and progress in keeping with the noble aspirations proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations.

 

The idea for this glossary originated with the positive response to the lecture ‘Definitions, Conceptions, and Debates in Peace and Security Studies in Africa’.

Delivered by Dr Ebrima Sall at the Africa Programme Advisory Meeting in Maputo, Mozambique, 23–25 October 2003, it was jointly written by Sall, then at the Nordic Africa Institute, and Dr Mary E. King, professor of peace and conflict studies at the University for Peace.”

Nevermore Sithole‘s insight:

Definitions, Conceptions, and Debates in Peace and Security Studies in Africa’.
