Journal of Conflict Transformation and Nation Building
Journal of Conflict Transformation and Nation-Building is a biannual publication of the African Heritage Institution (AfriHeritage), formerly known as the African Institute for Applied Economics. AfriHeritage is an international think-tank/research organization. Established in 2000, AfriHeritage’s principal mission is to provide intellectual leadership in helping Africa think through the emerging economic renaissance as the region works toward the dawn of a renascent Africa that is democratic, prosperous and a major player in the global economy.
Aims and Objectives
To achieve its objectives, the African Heritage Institution employs various tools such as capacity building, networking, policy dialogue and advocacy, and high-quality research for other institutions such as governments and international development organizations and agencies. Through it all, the overriding interest remains to help rebuild the African historical heritage of economic, intellectual and cultural leadership across various fields by building a critical mass of scholars of Africa to generate and share constructive knowledge and critical thinking on issues that affect or shape development, especially in Africa. AfriHeritage takes the position that meaningful and sustainable development will not take place within an environment riddled with destructive conflict or war. As such, it envisions the Journal of Conflict Transformation and Nation-Building as a medium through which scholars and practitioners can network and debate topical issues and anticipate impending problems while also looking to offer evidence-informed ideas and policies for transformative peace and sustainable development.
