About the APN

Launched in 2012, the African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) supports independent African research on conflict-affected countries and neighboring regions of the continent, as well as the integration of African knowledge into global policy communities. The APN promotes the visibility of African peacebuilding knowledge among global and regional centers of scholarly analysis and practical action, and makes it accessible to key policymakers at the United Nations and other multilateral, regional, and national policymaking institutions.



Individual Research Grants
Supporting up to six months of innovative field-based research in order to produce knowledge that can impact practical actions on peacebuilding initiatives in Africa (Maximum costs: $15,000). For more information click here.

Residential Postdoctoral Fellowships
Supporting African academics in the early postdoctoral phase of their careers for three months in both an African and an American institution as they complete ongoing projects on important and relatively less-studied themes and places in Africa (Maximum costs: $20,000). For more information click here.

These awards are open to scholars and practitioners from multidisciplinary backgrounds. Individuals that choose to apply for these programs must be based in African universities, research organizations, and/or policy and practitioner institutions.
