About this book

Dealing with Conflict in Africa analyzes the role of the various organizations involved in conflict resolution in Africa. The bulk of the chapters examine case studies of the major conflicts in Africa, such as the Congo War. For each case study, the author looks at what responsibilities and tasks were taken on by different organizations, the relationship between the organizations, and seeks to determine which kind of organization is the most effective in working towards successful conflict resolution. The contributors also examine the effectiveness of coalitions of states or eminent leaders to that of UN cooperation with regional organizations, and what directions this cooperation should take in the future. The contributors are an international group of scholars and consultants, all of whom are well positioned to analyze these issues.

JANE BOULDEN is a MacArthur Research Fellow at the Center for International Studies, Oxford University.

Reviews

"This is a very timely book. It examines questions which first arose in Liberia and which have not yet been fully answered: what can regional organizations contribute to the international community's efforts to maintain peace and security? and what should be the division of labour

between them and the United Nations? The book's six revealing case studies are all from Africa. But the conclusions which the authors so lucidly draw from them are of world-wide relevance." - Marrack Goulding

"This book presents an excellent and compelling analysis of the varied factors and variables that bedevil the resolution of African conflicts.The contributors to this volume have been able to tackle the opportunities and failures affecting the relationship between the United Nations and regional and sub-regional organizations in their joint efforts to solve regional conflicts. Policymakers, scholars and experts on Africa will be obliged to consult this volume to gain a proper understanding of the requirements for sound public policy." - James O. C. Jonah, Former Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs at the United Nations, Former Minister of Finance and Development of Sierra Leone
