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 Forum strives to provide a platform for young Africans to engage with African heads of state and governments, practitioners and experts in peace and security in Africa. Youth inclusion is an essential, yet often lacking, component of decision-making in Africa and the Forum offers several opportunities for youth participation before, during and after the Forum including youth debates, multi-stakeholder dialogues, civil society and media involvement, and different competitions.
One of the key activities of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa is the Annual Book Launch, where published authors - both African and non-African - have the opportunity to present their books on peace, security, governance or development.
The eighth edition of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa will take place on 4-5 May 2019 in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. The theme of the Forum will be "Political Dynamics in the Horn of Africa: Nurturing the Emerging Peace Trends".
