The Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding

Centering African knowledge and agency is key to building and sustaining peace in Africa. The Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding (SVNP) is a network of 22 African policy, research, and academic organizations that works with the Wilson Center’s Africa Program to attain the most appropriate, cohesive, and inclusive policy frameworks and approaches for achieving sustainable peace in Africa.

Generously sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York since its establishment in 2011, the SVNP works to generate African knowledge to inform U.S. and international peacebuilding policies on Africa; help build the next generation of African peacebuilders through its scholarship program; and create a pan-African network of African peacebuilding organizations, practitioners, and experts to collaborate and share knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned on peacebuilding in Africa.

The SVNP is a continent-wide network of African policy, research and academic organizations that works with the Wilson Center’s Africa Program to bring African knowledge and perspectives to U.S., African, and international policy on peacebuilding in Africa through the following:

•  Hosting scholars from the network for a 3-month residency at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.

•  Organizing first-class conferences that link members to one another and to U.S., African, and international policymakers and practitioners

•  Producing best-in-class policy analysis through research papers, policy briefs, reports, and posts on the Africa Program blog, Africa Up Close

The Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding was established in 2011 with the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York.

*The Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding was previously known as the Southern Voices Network.
