CENTER FOR HUMAN SECURITY
“After the series of consultations, we finally agreed that the centre should provide a base for theoretical, qualitative and quantitative analyses to unravel causal relationships and interdependencies which link or activate security threats in the cultural context of Africa.” – Olusegun Obasanjo. My Watch – Now and Then
The Centre provides a base for theoretical, qualitative and quantitative analyses to unravel casual relationships and interdependences which link or activate security threats in the cultural context of Africa. The Centre proceeds from such analyses to make recommendations for action at the community, national, regional and global levels.
The Vision of the Centre is to improve human security in Africa.
Its Mission is to advocate, educate, inspire, and act upon issues, concerns and challenges impacting human security in Africa.
The objectives of the Centre are:
- to provide a forum for policy dialogue on human security in Africa especially in the local area of agriculture, education and health;
- offer training at the certificate, diploma and degree levels to produce change agents for improving human security in Africa;
- conduct research, workshops, and conferences on all aspects of human security;
- generate evidence – based policy options for governments, the private sector, UN agencies, and other multinational groups;
- generate processed data on human security derived from a multiplicity of sources (e.g. UN and its Agencies, Africa Development Bank, World Bank, and national governments) usable by researchers and decision makers; and
- encourage international partnerships and collaboration in human security in Africa.
