About the pillar

Advancing peace and security is a fundamental aspect of shaping the global future. As Africa plays an increasingly central role in the emerging world order, its affairs will continue to impact safety and stability throughout the international system. The African continent faces a complex set of security challenges, including armed conflict, violent extremism, human rights violations, political and environmental disorder and more. The Africa Center offers high-level engagement and analysis on these issues with the aim of inspiring and supporting action to achieve inclusive and sustainable peace on the continent and beyond.

The Africa Center works to promote dynamic geopolitical partnerships with African states and to redirect US and European policy priorities toward strengthening security and bolstering economic growth and prosperity on the continent.
