In late August of 2023 one of our ANCIP-researchers travelled to Ghana to explore the Ghanian peace structures. Upon her arrival she had the opportunity to discuss peacebuilding mechanisms with public officials, academics and civil society. The objective of this research visit was to understand how different actors work together to foster peacebuilding.
At the invitation of Dr. Antonia Witt, I was privileged to spend two months (June to July 2023) as a visiting research professor at PRIF.
The visit allowed me to interact with PRIF staff and conduct research in three main areas: mediation of African conflicts by retired presidents; assess the mediation initiative by African presidents in the Russia-Ukraine conflict (June 2023); and co-author a policy brief with Dr. Dimpho Deleglise, a PRIF fellow, on the implementation of peace agreements in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Ethiopia
The 3rd ANCIP Workshop, held from July 12 to 14, 2023, in Duisburg, was a significant step for the project. Hosted by the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) at Duisburg-Essen University, this workshop provided a platform for project members to share their research findings, exchange insights, and strategically plan for the future.
The ANCIP project convened a panel the Seventh European Congress on World and Global History, held at Leiden University and The Hague from June 29 to July 1, 2023. The conference provided a dynamic platform for scholars and practitioners to delve into diverse aspects of world and global history under the headline “Conflict and Inequity, Peace and Justice: Local, Regional and International Historical Perspectives”.
