Conflicts, Security and Governance in Africa
From the mid-1990s onwards, GRIP developed considerable expertise in conflicts in Africa, and especially in the Great Lakes region and West Africa. Nowadays, several research themes coexist and are interdependent, ranging from conflict prevention to peacekeeping and –building, to security sector reforms and small arms proliferation on the continent.
GRIP provides both monitoring of situations and general analyses but also particular expertise. Besides an extensive network of external experts, GRIP has also numerous contacts within international, regional and sub-regional organisations on the continent. GRIP has developed an active partnership with the Sub-Saharan civil society too.
