Dag Hammarskjold Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies

Welcome to the Dag Hammarskjold Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies


About Us


Welcome to the Dag Hammarskjöld Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies (DHIPS) at the Copperbelt University is the forbearer of the Dag Hammarskjöld Chair of Peace, Human Rights and Conflict Management established on 11 November 2002 but officially launched on 26th February 2003. The ceremony to launch the chair featured a keynote address from Professor Ibrahim Gambari, Under-Secretary General, UN and special Adviser, to then UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan.

The initiative was in memory of Dag Hammarkjold, the Second Secretary-General of the United Nations who was killed in 1961 in an aircraft crash in the vicinity of the City of Ndola, the Provincial Capital of the Copperbelt Province. He was on a United Nations Mission to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the Congo, later to become the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The Chair, whose pro-active instrument was envisaged as that of research, workshops, colloquims and seminars on peace, human rights and conflict management was operationalized through the setting up of DHIPS and the appointment of a Director. The Institute has plans of relocating to the vicinity of the crash site.

The Institute's role was determined in 2003 by five components of the Dag Hammarkjold Living Memorial Initiative (DHLMI), a collaborative project between the United Nations Country Team (UNCT), the Zambian Government, the Swedish and Nordic Missions in Zambia and the Mindolo Ecumenical Foundation. The components are summarized below as follows:

Component 1   :   To conduct reseach, workshops, colloquiums and seminars in peace, human rights and conflict management including the inaugration of a Lecture Series inspired by Mary Robinson's presentation at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD). In the past this component has been operatiionalized through deliverables such as the conference proceedings "from Dag Hammarkjold to Date: The Genesis and Evolution of the Democratic Republic of Congo Conflict" held in Kitwe, Zambia from 27th to 29th July 2005. The other deliverable was a monograph, 'Civil-Military Relations in Zambia published in 2004;

Component 2   :   To carry out in-depth research and studies on Zambia's role in the sub-regional, regional and international peace negotiations, including Zambia's active role in the UN Peace Keeping and Electoral Observer Missions abroad. In this respect DHIPS would serve as a coordinating hub for other institutions in the country and beyond;

Component 3   :   To conduct research in the Triangular Areas of Human Rights, Environment and Sustainable Development as presented to the WSSD by Mary Robinson and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Executive Director Klaus Topler. The Institute endeavours to work with other institutions and individuals in undertaking this component;

Component 4   :   To provide integral linkage of the Chair and now the Dag Hammarkjold Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, with other programmes and dimensions of the DHLMI such as refugee dimensions and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). The Institute undertakes in depth research through Special Research Fellows (SRFs) with their work culminating into doctoral dissertation and consequently contributing to research work by DHIPS;

Component 5   :   To carry out research and conduct workshops in order for the chair and now DHIPS, to define conflict and recognize conflict management as a combination of dispute prevention and resolution. Graduate students are conducting both conceptual and empirical studies, which, as an MA graduation requirement are earmarked for publication under DHIPS and other publishing houses. The work of the Strategic Studies Group (SSG) is expected to bolster the Institute's research agenda. The Institute undertakes periodic seminars, some of which are with high-level local and international speakers.

Vision and Mission

The Vision for the Dag Hammarskjöld Institute for Peace Studies is:
Find something to live for and great enough to die for. Dag Hammarskjöld SWEDISH DIPLOMAT, ECONOMIST, and AUTHOR

In fulfilling this vision, the Institute has the following Mission Statement:

Undertaking teaching, research at a high institution level and community service in peace, human rights, conflict management and sustainable development; enhancing the process of regional integration; and contributing to regional and international peace, stability and cooperation.

The Institute strives to keep alive the memory of the late Dag Hammarskjöld. In this regard, DHIPS is currently contributing to regional peace, stability and cooperation, through interactions with the African Union (AU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) as well as with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme and United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO); including with a myriad of other universities, Centres and Institutes on the African continent and beyond. The Institute is also involved in policy research work on Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development (PCRD) with the AU and the Government of Egypt.

Further, the Institute participates in the ''Managing Defence in the Wider Security Context'' programme for the Southern African Region sponsored by the British Government and supported by the British Defence Academy and the Cranfield University in the United Kingdom as well as in some activities of the Zambian Institute of Diplomacy and International Studies (ZIDIS) and the Zambian government.

The Dag Hammarskjöld Institute for Peace Studies conducts lectures, academic and policy research, in the area of human rights, governance and peace building; human security and development; and environment, sustainable development and peace including defence and security management and diplomacy and strategic studies. The Institution also disseminates information designed to mitigate conflict and enhance peaceful co-existence within and between communities and states.

The Institute's other responsibilities include outreach programmes in the themes mentioned above. In this regard the outreach programmes, target institutions, organisations and settlements within Zambia, with the objective of contributing to the enhancement of peace education. The subjects include women and the youth in peace building; democratic governance; and the promotion of peace and conflict resolution education, especially to Zambians living in areas bordering refugee camps.

Objectives


The objectives of the Dag Hammarskjöld Institute for Peace Studies are to:

  • Provide quality graduate level training in peace and conflict studies and subsequent provision of post-graduate and under-graduate programmes;
  • Undertake academic research in the furtherance of an enhanced understanding of peace and conflict issues and development of new knowledge;
  • Undertake policy research in areas requiring urgent attention and development of strategies to mitigate conflict and enhance development through a myriad of means, including through the development of a strategic cell;
  • Undertake out-reach activities and short courses intended to enhance consciousness of the value of peace; and
  • Afford education with an institution of higher learning for peace and with the aim of upholding, among all learners the spirit of consideration, forbearance (tolerance) and peaceful co-existence.

Governance of DHIPS


As a university-based institution, DHIPS is organically linked to the Copperbelt University. However, the nature of the Institute’s work requires that it also assume some peculiarities in its make-up to meet the demands of think tanks. The broader emphasis on research components such as the strategic studies cell is a case in point. Consequently the governance structure for the Institute comprises of an Advisory Board; Board of Studies; Post-Graduate Committee; Research Committee; and an Executive Committee/Promotions and Appointments Committee.

The Director provides both strategic and operational leadership for the Institute. A Board of Studies assists the Executive Committee; Research Committee; which meets once per term or as required. The Executive Committee assisted by a Board of Studies; Research Committee meets once per semester or as required.

The Advisory Board is envisaged to meet once per year or as required, advises on strategic policy and other management matters, which affect or may affect the Institute. It is proposed that Mr. William Nyirenda SC, a well-respected lawyer with a background of strategic leadership in the peace and conflict area through his connection as Governor of Rotary International, becomes its inaugural Chair of the Advisory Board and that its membership (11) be drawn from the following institutions:

  1. United Nations;
  2. Swedish Embassy;
  3. Copperbelt University;
  4. Zambia Institute for Diplomacy and International Studies;
  5. Representative, African Union (AU);
  6. Representative, Southern African Development Community;

OUR WORK


Our work for peace must begin within the private world of each one of us. To build a world without fear, we must be without fear. To build a world of justice, we must be just. Dag Hammarskjöld: 22 December, 1953 UN Ambassador , Diplomat

MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN


Welcome to DHIPS and hope you will find courses research projects that will be of interest to you. This year we are taking in our first undergraduate students. The bachelor of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies will provide a broad based foundation for future entry into the Copperbelt University’s Law Programme, postgraduate courses in Peace and Conflict Studies at CBU and elsewhere as well as the more practical daily work of peace research and conflict management that will be useful for police, military and prisons officers, social workers, trade unionists and a whole lot of other professions concerned with social wellbeing. PhD students will be able to choose between the coursework based Joint PhD in Governance, Peace and Development (PGPD) and the regular PhD by research. The Joint PhD in PGDP be co-taught with Uganda Martyrs University, and UPeace Africa Program. It is envisaged that other partner-universities currently involved in the will joint at a later stage.

Ecosystem benefits and water security are directly linked to natural resources governance, policy, access and sustainability issues. Protected Areas management is a crucial component of this nexus. The Insaka Consortium and the International Water Security Network share the belief that water sustainability and security depend on more than supply/demand models and (over)emphasis on physical infrastructure. Good natural resources governance ensures equitable access to needed natural resources in the right quantities and qualities to sustain livelihoods and socio-ecological values. The convergence zone between environmental security and protected areas management presents scholars, policy makers, managers, services providers, and other stakeholders with crucial opportunities for collaboration. Such collaboration, multidisciplinary and multi-scalar in nature, can support systemic decision-making more likely to result in environmentally, technically and socially acceptable resource allocation.

Through collaboration, Insaka Consortium and IWSN aim to galvanize efforts and linkages with institutions for productive collaboration to foster interaction on diverse issues embodied in natural resource security (particularly, but not restricted to, water), carrying out research for knowledge development and outline the issues ahead, show the necessity of linking equitable access and sustainability to good natural resources governance.

Under the cross cutting themes of ‘risks & vulnerabilities’ and ‘innovation & adaptive capacity’ the project‘s main thematic foci are:

  • Towards Urban Water Security (UWE, Bristol)
  • Transboundary Water Security (University of Arizona)
  • Improving Water Quality Security (Monash South Africa)

The Insaka Consortium (https://www.msa.ac.za/research/insaka/) comprises Copperbelt University, Zambia; Monash South Africa; the University of Namibia; The University of Montana, USA and the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. SANParks and the Institute of Natural Resources are important non-university partners.
