This month we are pleased to announce that Resilient Peace Partner the University of Western Australia has launched the Africa Research and Engagement Centre (AfREC). The Centre produces research, teaching, training and other collaborations with partners to address sustainable development challenges and responsibilities and to strengthen wider Australia-Africa relations.
Resilient Peace’s Mission
Through a series of three workshops throughout 2018, we will bring together leading experts from world-class academic institutions to establish a hub of expertise addressing how to achieve and exceed the aims of SDG 16 in West Africa. As will be elaborated below, this is a generalised continuum of problems and solutions, and one that requires expertise from multidisciplinary and multinational approaches. The insights from this project will contribute to a better understanding of why resilience approaches in peacebuilding either fail or succeed, notably by examining how they are received at the local level.
