Kampala International University (KIU) signed a world class partnership with African borderlands research network (ABORNE), as part of the university’s commitment to boost and support research in all areas to bring about positive development.

ABORNE is an inter-disciplinary network of researchers interested in all aspects of international borders and trans-boundary phenomena in Africa. According to Professor Paul Nutgent from the University of Edinburgh, the main emphasis is largely on borderlands as physical spaces and social spheres, but the network is also concerned with the regional flow of people and goods as well as economic and social processes that may be located at some distance from the geographical border.
