Outreach and Advocacy

Through outreach and advocacy, UNREC promotes disarmament and arms-control in Africa. Also, the Centre fosters understanding of the links between disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control on the one hand and sustainable development, durable peace, as well as security and stability on the other and emphasizes cross-cutting issues such as gender and human rights.

Initiatives include:

  • Organisation of events to commemorate international observances that relate to the Centre’s mandate, including but not limited to Disarmament Week, International Day of Peace, International Day of Non-Violence, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the African Women’s Decade.

  • Organisation of and participation in activities organised by States, the African Union, Regional Economic Communities, or non-governmental organisations, aiming at imparting knowledge on international disarmament and non-proliferation instruments and standards, and facilitating understanding of those instruments and the synergies that exist among them. Those activities address a wide range of stakeholders and groups including, but not limited to, national authorities mandated to coordinate SALW control efforts, diplomats, members of parliament, youth, women, and media.

  • Dissemination of information on disarmament and non-proliferation matters and efforts through several communication channels including newsletters, press releases and interviews.
