The DDPS Alumni Community Network

Our DDPS Alumni Community is a network so far comprised of 117 experts in the field of peace and security who are spread over 30 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, all of us share one common experience: We all have participated in the well renowned DDPS training courses at KAIPTC in Accra/Ghana between 2008 and 2013. We are highly educated, have different working backgrounds (ministries, police, military, NGOs, etc.), different specialisations and are English- and/or French-speaking. As a community, we work as multipliers and offer our expertise to ministries, institutions, international organisations as well as think tanks and others.
