The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre: the complexity of combining national ownership, a regional mandate and international support
What blocks or drives regional integration in Africa? And what role do regional organisations play in this? To answer these questions, we have dug deeper into the political economy dynamics of 17 regional organisations in Africa.
This policy brief analyses why the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) operates as it does, particularly in relation to national level stakeholders. It is based on a background paper that was prepared in March 2017 (which will be available soon).
This work is part of ECDPM's PEDRO project (‘The political economy of dynamics of regional organisations in Africa’), which looks into the political economy dynamics of 17 regional organisations in Africa. The study, carried out with support from the German ministry for economic cooperation and development (BMZ), will try to understand the actors and factors that shape how regional organisations play their role in promoting regional integration and cooperation.
