African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes

ACCORD is an institute committed to the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts in Africa. ACCORD’s primary aim is to influence political developments across the continent by encouraging conflict resolution and dialogue as an alternative to armed violence and protracted conflict.
The website publishes news and hosts two ACCORD’s publications:
Conflict Trends, which focuses on reporting on and analysing trends in current and emerging conflicts on the continent of Africa. In all, 28 issues had been produced in march 2006, some of them in partnership with UN agencies. All the issues are available on the site; articles are available as free downloads in PDF format.
The African Journal on Conflict Resolution, an academic journal focusing on conflict transformation in Africa. Articles are longer and more in depth than those found in Conflict Trends, and of an overtly academic nature. However, readership is not limited to academic institutions, and literary style has deliberately been kept accessible and straightforward. Copies of all articles from all editions of the journal can be downloaded from the site.
