On 11 and 12 July, the ANCIP network met for its first internal project workshop in Frankfurt am Main. During the workshop, ANCIP members presented the research plans and state of the art for each of the seven subprojects. In addition to that, we also discussed topics around field research and access to data around African non-military interventions which served to prepare the first field research phases taking place in the second half of 2022. A central theme of the ANCIP network is the joint work on a database on African non-military conflict intervention practices. The workshop therefore also helped to define a common vision for that databased and to identify how the different subprojects can contribute to it.
On April 18, 2022, the newly established ANCIP research project kickstarted its work with an insightful roundtable discussion on the recent wave of unconstitutional changes of government in Africa. The panelists were the principal investigators of the newly founded ANCIP project, Prof. Dr. Ulf Engel (University Leipzig), Dr. Antonia Witt (Senior Researcher at PRIF, Frankfurt) and Prof. Christof Hartmann (Director of INEF, Duisburg-Essen), and Ambassador Said Djinnit. The roundtable was part of the annual conference of the ReCentGlobe at Leipzig University and was followed by an international audience both online and in-person with great interest.
