Infrastructure, Peace, African, Experience, Lesson
The study investigates African experience and lesson of infrastructures for peace. It focuses mainly on two examples of infrastructure for peace as seen in Ghana and Kenya as well as x-ray what a ministry of peace might be like in Nigeria. The two main infrastructures for peace the paper explores are National Peace Council and Local Peace Committee. Promoting peace perspective in government also remains a central idea of the paper, and a cabinet-level ministry of peace is instrumental to this. The study adopts a descriptive approach and draws secondary data from books, journals, internet and other literature materials. The study reveals that national peace council was instrumental to a peaceful election in Ghana while local peace committees were instrumental to that of Kenya. The key lesson following the finding is that infrastructure for peace is an essential cutting-edge tool for addressing conflict and violence in the African society.
