The African Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development
...The Institute is founded on the principle that sustainable development and the war against poverty are attainable only in situations where there exists durable peace, the respect of human rights and democracy...
The African Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development is specialized in providing academic and applied skills in peace building, conflict resolution, democracy and policy issues that affect sustainable development in Africa. Certificate programs in life skills will also be offered at the institute as a motivating factor for youths from economically disadvantaged backgrounds as well as a sustainable strategy to place peace activists within their respective communities. Each student of the Institute will be required to complete a program on inter-cultural and tribal conflict transformation and forgiveness and reconciliation, regardless of their domain of specialization. This prerequisite will ensure that peace and conflict studies will be mainstreamed throughout the Institute.
