George Mason University Partners With an African Nonprofit Organization

The School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, has signed an agreement with 72 Africa, a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing sustainable peace environments throughout Africa. The organization is an offshoot of the Northern Ghana Peace Building and Conflict Transformation project that began in 1999.

Aapengnuo72 Africa was founded by Clement Aapengnou, who earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in social communications from the Pontifical Salesian University in Rome and a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in conflict resolution at George Mason University. Dr. Aapengnou stated that the agreement will be beneficial to both organizations: “72 Africa will benefit from Mason’s years of experience teaching conflict studies. And 72 Africa offers Mason valuable practical field experience. Faculty and students will have the opportunity for action-oriented research and in exchange, 72 Africa can practice ‘evidence-based’ peace building.”
