Strategising for peace and social justice in West Africa

This overview is designed to provide an insight into the history of our work in West Africa, particularly since the inception of the West Africa Programme in 1998.

The West Africa Programme at International Alert has been actively working with partners from the region for many years in seeking to transform conflicts in the area through projects that contribute to bringing about social justice and peace. We are very much aware that other actors have also played a role in conflict transformation in the region.

This report provides the context for our engagement in the region, a summary of our projects and work in the area, and an overview of our current strategies.
