An Academic and Research Institute with a Pan-African Reach
The Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at the Addis Ababa University is the premiere institute for education, research, and policy dialogues on peace and security in Africa.
One of the tasks Addis Ababa University has bestowed upon the IPSS is training academic staff from other universities in Ethiopia. To undertake this national task, IPSS accepts students from national and regional institutions and trains them in the programme.
Policy Dialogues is part of the Africa Peace and Security Programme (APSP). It is a platform for African leaders, stakeholders and thought leaders to collaboratively engage in exploring and exchanging ideas on African-led solutions to security challenges.

IPSS provides recognized academic education and professional training in conflict analysis, prevention, management and resolution. It also conducts academic and applied research in the area of peace and security that takes into account the interaction between governance, human security, socio-economic development and sustainable peace.
