Research on African non-military conflict intervention practices (ANCIP)
Since 1 April 2022 a joint research project on African non-military conflict intervention practices (ANCIP) commences at the Research Centre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe), Leipzig University, the Leibniz Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF), and the Institute For Development and Peace (INEF), University of Duisburg-Essen. Financially, the project is generously supported under the Federal Ministry of Education’s funding line “Promotion of research groups in the field of peace and conflict research. Strengthening and further development of peace and conflict research”. The four year project is led by Prof. Dr. Ulf Engel (Institute for African Studies, Leipzig University), together with Dr. Antonia Witt who is head of the research group „African Intervention Politics“ at PRIF and Prof. Dr. Christof Hartmann who is the director of INEF. Institutionally the network is anchored at the Leipzig Research Centre Global Dynamics.
