The EAC, through a Tripartite Partnership MoU with Arcadia University and the American Graduate School, is set to relaunch activities at the Nyerere Centre for Peace Research in Arusha and online to support the EAC agenda of peace and security in East Africa and to build local capacities for peace building. The Centre, since the departure of Arcadia University program, has been relatively inactive. The purpose of the partnership is to re-launch the Centre to enable taking its Mandate as an internationally recognized centre of Excellence in East Africa and the go-to hub for research, analysis and promotion of dialogue.

In September 2022, the EAC signed a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Arcadia University, an institute of higher learning based in Pennsylvania – USA and the American Graduate School, an institute of higher learning based in Paris, France. The MoU establishes an agreement to collaborate in the operation of the Julius Nyerere Centre to be housed at the EAC Nyerere Centre for Peace Research in Arusha, Tanzania.

In this collaboration, the EAC, the IPCR program at Arcadia University, and the American Graduate School for International Relations and Diplomacy shall develop and implement specific activities and programs in keeping with their respective mandates both individually and collaborate with the Nyerere Centre.

In line with the collaboration agreement, American Graduate School shall provide:

  1. Pathways for EAC students and EAC partners in the Masters and PhD programs in Paris;

  2. Research assistance and expertise;

  3. Publication and proceedings support.

 These partnership activities are to commence in February 2023.
