Kujenga Amani (Swahili for “building peace”) is produced by the African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) to provide listeners with informative commentary by scholars, practitioners, and policymakers working in the field of African peacebuilding.

Recorded at various workshops, conferences, and meetings organized by the APN, these podcasts are disseminated with the intention of mapping emerging challenges and responding to knowledge and policy gaps, while simultaneously connecting peacebuilding conversations within Africa to those in other parts of the world in an open and constructive manner.

The APN is supported by Carnegie Corporation of New York.
