Mrs Olatokunbo IGE, Director, UN Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Africa
Mrs Ige will present the work of the UN regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Africa. UNREC’s core efforts consist of promoting universalization of disarmament instruments and assisting African States in their effective implementation, with a view to curtailing illicit trafficking and proliferation of arms, enhancing governmental control over national stocks, and increasing national and regional security and stability. Due to the specific nature of security issues in Africa, the Centre puts an emphasis on activities linked to four thematic areas: Small Arms and Light Weapons; Conventional Arms; Weapons of Mass Destruction; and Security Sector Reform.
This event will be followed by an informal reception where students are welcome to network with Mrs Ige.
