MPSA Alumni Event 2023
The MPSA programme provides state-of-the-art executive training for professionals working on African peace and security issues. The objective of the programme is to enhance the professional competencies of senior and mid-level officials from the African Union (AU), Regional Economic Communities (RECs), and Regional Mechanisms (RMs) working as part of the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA). It was launched by the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at Addis Ababa University (AAU) following the call by the African Heads of State and Government to address peace and security in Africa as an intellectual challenge (Tripoli Declaration 2009). Since being launched, MPSA has graduated more than 350 professionals from over 49 countries across Africa and beyond.
