The African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), in collaboration with the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Diplomacy (LECIAD) at the University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana, organized a two-day research proposal development and writing workshop on African peacebuilding. Hosted by LECIAD, the workshop brought together thirty-one researchers, junior faculty, early-career PhD holders, policy practitioners, and activists to discuss the art of writing high-quality research and grant application proposals that can contribute to existing African peacebuilding knowledge. The event, which was held October 15–16, 2015, included men and women from conflict-affected West African countries, including Liberia and Sierra Leone, as well as Ghana, Nigeria, and Togo. Participants also included colleagues and PhD students from LECIAD, as well as the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) and the University of Ghana’s Department of Political Science and Institute of African Studies.
