At LPI we believe that knowledge increases by sharing. We also believe that knowledge should reach as many as possible and as easily as possible. With that in mind, we are proud to announce that the Life & Peace Institute (LPI) is now an Africa Portal content partner. “Africa Portal is an online resource that seeks to broaden the availability, accessibility and use of policy research on issues critical to the future of Africa.” A collaborative project between the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), the Portal is a sophisticated yet accessible open-source platform.
Since our founding 30 years ago, LPI has aimed to understand and help transform conflicts. Over 3 decades we have conducted research, worked for local capacity-building, and produced numerous publications on nonviolent conflict transformation, conflict analysis and peacebuilding. This partnership brings our work closer to policy-makers, researchers and change agents.
All our resources and publications (including our bi-monthly Horn of Africa Bulletin) will now be available on Africa Portal’s user-friendly Digital Library, in addition, members of our Editorial Committee as well as all our Resident Representatives will feature on the Experts Directory. Free, easy, and user-friendly. Now that is a knowledge economy we are pleased to be part of.
