Peace and Security for African Development

Proceedings of the sixth annual AISA Young Graduates and Scholars (AYGS) Conference

edited by Africa Institute of South Africa

The AISA Young Graduates and Scholars (AYGS) initiative is a research capacity building programme. The programme was conceived in 2005 with the aim of building a body of knowledge on, and to project the African voice in, various discourses about the continent and the African diaspora. It is further intended to bridge the existing gap of expertise in knowledge production on African affairs by developing a cadre of knowledge producers among the youth. The objective of the AYGS has always been to provide a platform for young and emerging scholars on new insights in the debates pertaining to the challenges facing African societies. It also intends to forge a new way for the upliftment of African value systems and the ultimate integration of the African continent. AISA has partnered with several organisations, such as the Guggenheim Foundation, New York, which brings graduate students or fellows from their programmes to exchange ideas and compete with AISAís chosen young scholars. The Council of Europe is another organisation that used to sponsor AISA Young Scholars to European Union activities, and co-sponsor AISA activities.
