IPSS joined more than 100 ‘peace projects’ and over 65 Heads of State and Government at the recently concluded Paris Peace Forum, a new initiative launched by French President Emmanuel Macron on the centenary of Wold War I. From 11-13 November, over 10,000 visitors gathered in Paris to exchange on issues ranging from peace and security to technology and climate change.

 

GIZ, through the German Ministry for Cooperation and Development (BMZ), supports the African Union (AU) through two peace and security projects: 1) Support to the AU through Research, Training and Policy Dialogues for Peace and Security in Africa’; and 2) Support to the AU for the Operationalization of the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA).

 

The Forum featured an innovative format, in which projects were displayed on ‘Space for Solutions’. The programme also featured mixed discussion sessions, including pitch sessions, meetups, brain dates and plenary discussions.

 

IPSS was represented by Michelle Mendi Muita, Content Coordinator for the Tana Forum, and Frank Djan Owusu, Programme Advisor for the MPSA Executive Master’s Programme.
