Volume 2015, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1561-9818


The planning, conduct and management of peace operations by the United Nations (UN), the African Union (AU) and its regional economic communities/regional mechanisms (REC/RMs) have improved significantly when compared to the early 1990s. Multiple factors have converged to explain this development, but critical among them is the impact of high-quality research undertaken by numerous stakeholders in the field of peace operations. One of the many stakeholders that has contributed to policy development and training for peace operations through applied research is the Training for Peace (TfP) in Africa Programme. Since the inception of the TfP Programme in 1995 by the Norwegian government, it has worked through civil society organisations, training and research institutions to strengthen African civilian and police capacity for peace operations.
