The independent resource on global security


SIPRI’s partnership with African civil society organizations (CSOs) involved facilitating contacts, sharing knowledge and expertise and laying the foundations for future collaborative work.

The main aims of this component are:

  • To strengthen networking between and amongst African CSOs working on security issues;
  • To link up African CSOs to policy processes and mechanisms for addressing security issues within Africa (e.g. the African Union's Economic Social and Cultural Council process); and 
  • To connect African CSOs with available expertise on security issues within and outside the continent.
