A Trade for Peace Approach for African Stability
Tune in today for a special Trade for Peace podcast episode, A TRADE FOR PEACE APPROACH FOR AFRICAN STABILITY, released just in time for the US-Africa Leaders' Summit, taking place in Washington DC this week! Don't miss this enthralling and timely discussion on fragility in Africa!
Please join Dr. Joseph Sany, Vice President of the African Centre of the United States Institute for Peace (USIP), an independent institute founded by the US Congress dedicated to the proposition that a world without violent conflict is possible, practical and essential for U.S. and global security.
In this episode, Dr. Sany shares his personal and professional experiences in working in fragile and conflict affected states (FCS). He talks about the challenges and drivers of instability and conflict in Africa and how this affects people's daily life. He also explains the United States Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability as well as the Global Fragility Act and its role in building sustainable peace by including all stakeholders in the process of resolving conflicts. In particular, Dr. Sany emphasizes the importance of local ownership in addressing fragility. He ends the conversation by sharing his views on the role of the international trading system in fostering and sustaining peace and stability in African countries, particularly those currently acceding to the WTO.
