Over the past twenty years, the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) has evolved into an organisation that successfully promotes reflection, education and intervention in African conflicts. At our inception in 1992 we put forward the ambitious and progressive mission to 'encourage and promote the constructive resolution of disputes by the peoples of Africa and so assist in achieving political stability, economic recovery and peaceful co-existence within just and democratic societies'. Achieving this goal has required ACCORD's constant evolution so as to best anticipate and navigate Africa's continually changing socio-political climate. Our experiences reflect the fundamental reality that conflicts on the continent are complex and multi-faceted. These require a confluence of skilled intervention, practical knowledge and determined political will.
