Background

The Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa is an annual meeting that brings together African leaders and stakeholders to engage and explore African-led security solutions. The Institute for Peace and Security (IPSS) of Addis Ababa University (AAU) serves as the secretariat of the forum. The 10th edition of the Tana Forum will take place on 25-29 October 2021 in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. The Forum will explore the theme: “**Managing Security Threats**: Building Resilience for the Africa We Want.”

The Forum complements formal meetings of African heads of state and government by assembling them in an informal, collaborative environment. In the spirit of gatherings taking place under the Baobab tree, the Forum offers room and space for panel discussions, interaction with the floor and bilateral talks to share views and experiences in a time-efficient, result-oriented and open manner.

The Tana Forum promotes African-led solutions by holding discussions on the strategic and proactive management of African peace and security issues driven by the interest to contribute to stronger ownership of these issues.

From the seating arrangements to the dress code, the informal nature of the Forum enables participants to get to the heart of the issue at hand, a truly unique experience for high-level dialogue. Furthermore, the Forum is immersive in that it combines the worlds of academia and research with real-world, real-time experience. The result is an action-oriented and policy-relevant discussion.
