Gilbert Khadiagala, ANCIP Fellow at PRIF – A Brief Report on Activities

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

First Research Stay at the African Union

From mid-October to the end of November, the ANCIP researchers Camille Vern, S. Elisabeth Warnck (ReCentGlobe, University of Leipzig) and Jonas Schaaf (PRIF) conducted research at the African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa. Setting continental frameworks for peace and security, the AU represents a key actor investigated by the ANCIP network. The goal of this first trip to the AU Headquarters was to provide an empirical foundation for the subprojects on which to build our subsequent analyses. In doing so, we engaged with a variety of actors working on site to explore their practices in the context of non-military interventions by the AU.

ANCIP Kick-off Workshop in Frankfurt

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.
