Partnership with SIGLA
Since 2011 the Centre for
Military Studies (CEMIS) cooperated with the Security Institute for Governance
and Leadership in Africa (SIGLA). SIGLA
came about as a joint initiative of the Faulty of Military Science and
Stellenbosch University. SIGLA forms
part of the Hope Projects of the Stellenboch University and has a Memorandum of
Understanding with the Africa Forum.
Some of the activities of SIGLA include an exchange program between
Stellenbosch University, Coventry and Kadir Has University in Turkey. SIGLA is housed at and affiliated
to the School for Public Leadership (SPL), of both institutions. The patron of
SIGLA is President Joaquim Chissano, recipient of the Mo Ibrahim Prize for
Achievement in African Leadership and the current chair of the Forum for Former
African Heads of State and Government or Africa Forum. The Acting Director of
CEMIS serves as a member of the Management Committee of SIGLA.
