Peace, Security and Democracy Programme

    The Peace, Security and Democracy programme is premised on the recognition that violent conflicts and political instability have undermined Africa’s economic development. The programme is underpinned by the nexus between peace and development on the one hand and democracy on the other. The strategic objective of this program is to strengthen democracy and security institutions in East and Southern Africa. This will be achieved through:

    i) building capacity of national political and administrative institutions,

    ii) supporting democratic, legal and policy reforms,

    iii) supporting security sector reforms,

    iv) supporting regional peacebuilding initiatives.
