Journal of African Peace and Security

About the Journal

The Journal of African Peace and Security (JAPS) is a biannual scholarly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to deepening knowledge and understanding in the issue areas of African peace and security. JAPS was established by the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) in 2018 as an academically rigorous and practitioner-focused journal with a focus on African Peace. Recognising knowledge as a ‘public good’, the JAPS offers open access to top-quality articles that provide fresh and critical insights into issues and problems around peace and security on the African continent. Consistent with this recognition, the journal serves as a platform for cutting-edge research targeted at academics, policy professionals and students. JAPS is designed for researchers seeking to publish in an African-based journal of the highest international standard and reputation, as well as practitioners interested in illuminating their understanding of the changing landscape of peace and security in Africa. JAPS publishes research articles, review articles and book reviews.
