AFSC’s Salama Hub, established in 2021, is a research and advocacy hub focused on promoting peace and stability in the Horn of Africa.

We collaborate with civil society organizations, think tanks, faith leaders, activists, and others across Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda, Eritrea, and Djibouti. Our strategic partners include the All Africa Conference of Churches and Brot für die Welt.

The Salama Hub works to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations (CSO) and faith-based organizations (FBOs) in the region to organize and influence policies on the local, regional, national, and global levels. We equip CSOs and FBOs with tools and knowledge on conflict transformation and advocacy. Together, we engage with the African Union, European Union, U.S. government, and others to influence sociopolitical dynamics and policies through evidence-based advocacy. The program also contributes to creating advocacy platforms and alliances for peacebuilding organizations.  

Research is at the heart of the Salama Hub program. We commission African researchers to gather evidence and perspectives that are grounded in communities. This research forms the basis of our advocacy for nonviolent approaches to conflict as well as policies to bring peace and stability to the Horn of Africa.
