This blog is dedicated to tracking the work of individuals and civil society groups across Africa whose goals are to build peaceful, stable communities, to support greater communication and collaboration across Africa's many different fences and frontiers and to grow new, well-rooted African institutions to take that work forward.
The PeaceAfrica website carries news, debates and images on these themes. This blog is intended to augment, highlight and complement PeaceAfrica's coverage.
Check back often to find out about the constructive and fruitful work going on every day on our continent. We don't deny the many negative and tragic truths about Africa which get so much coverage; we only say that they are not the whole picture and it's time there was more knowledge and recognition for Africa's peacebuilders.
