Established in 1992, the Africa Program examines the capacity of Africa's regional and sub-regional organizations to prevent and respond to existing and emerging security challenges on the continent.

Meeting Notes - November 27, 2013
When the United Nations was established after the Second World War, organized crime and terrorism had almost nothing to do with international peace and security.
