Africa Peace and Conflict Network
Africa Peace and Conflict Network (ACPN) is an integral part of community outreach and research in the Department of Conflict Analysis & Resolution (DCAR). ACPN's work encompasses negotiations, alternative dispute resolution, and other areas related to conflict prevention and management such as development, relief, governance, policing, and law. Activities include Africa-focused research and knowledge generation and dissemination, and peacebuilding work, assistance, and training.
ACPN developed out of a unique concentration of Africanist expertise within the Department of Conflict Analysis and Resolution (DCAR) at Nova Southeastern University -- one of four doctoral level conflict resolution programs globally. At any given time roughly thirty African doctoral students are undergoing training through DCAR and ACPN. This core nucleus expanded to encompass members from other locations and institutions and partnerships were formed with organizations in Africa, Europe, and elsewhere. ACPN’s membership includes faculty, postgraduate students, and professionals with extensive research and practitioner experience in Africa and conflict issues. ACPN members have unique expertise related to most current African conflicts, including those in Ethiopia, Cote de Ivoire and the Mano River region, the Nigerian Delta, and Darfur.
