What We Do

KAICT engages in three areas of activity:

  • As an Institute of the Graduate School of the University of Liberia, KAICT offers a regular study program leading to a Master’s of Arts (M.A.) in Peace Studies and Conflict Transformation.
  • Subscribing to Humboldt’s ideals of transferring academic knowledge broadly into society, KAICT entertains an extensive extra-curricular program. This ranges from specialized course for professionals to our weekly public information and debate events.
  • KAICT further is engaging in research. We in particular have active projects on “Security Sector Reform and Access to Justice” and the “Political and Social Order in Urban Liberia”. As an institution cutting across all three areas, KAICT entertains the “Security Sector Reform Think Tank” (SSRTT). It seeks to strengthen civil society – security sector relations and create knowledge on Liberia’s security challenges. SSRTT thereby strengthens Liberian capacities and ownership of security institutions, and promotes an accountable, democratically oriented and human rights protecting security sector.
