Social Science Research Council

The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is a core institutional partner of the African Leadership Centre (ALC) through its African Peacebuilding Network (APN). The objective of the APN is to support independent African research in conflict affected countries and regions of the continent.

The APN promotes the visibility of African peacebuilding knowledge in global and regional centres of scholarly analysis and practical action. It aims to make this knowledge accessible to key policymakers at the United Nations and other multilateral, regional, and national policymaking institutions. It seeks to do this by improving the quality and enlarging the scale of African research, consolidating the contributions of African researchers and analysts, and connecting African researchers, policy analysts, practitioners, and networks with each other and with policymaking communities around the world.

The African Peacebuilding Network Hub (APN-Hub) is the joint programme of these two institutions whose commitment is to advance African debates on peacebuilding and promote African perspectives through various activities organized in Africa, in cooperation with African research organizations and networks. APN provides support for the APN-Hub which is located in, and administered by, the ALC. In addition to running a research programme on Leadership and Peacebuilding in Africa, the APN-Hub also pays attention to networking African researchers working in this area by building their methodological capacities and dissemination of their research products.
