The African Futures Project is a collaboration between the Institute for Security Studies (www.issafrica.org) and the Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures (www.ifs.du.edu) at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver. The Institute for Security Studies is a widely recognized Pan-African think tank specializing in issues of human security. The Pardee Center is the home of the International Futures modelling system, an integrated approach to exploring and understanding human development and the broad implications of policy choices. These organizations leverage each others’ expertise to provide forward-looking, policy-relevant material that frames uncertainty around human development in Africa.
