About Us


The African Center for Science and International Security (AFRICSIS) is an independent science-based non-profit organization, in partnership with Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC). The Center envisions a safer, more secure and stable Africa that is obtaining maximum benefits from dual-use science and technology in the fields of nuclear science and technology and satellite applications. Working with African states, partners, agencies, industry, academia and other scientific organizations, the Center’s focus is providing rigorous-objective research, policy-oriented technical training, evidenced-based analysis, and practical policy recommendations that are essential to devise innovative and effective solutions for some of the most complex and vexing security questions of the 21st century.
