African Conflict Resolution: Background resources

Prepared for Rotimi Suberu's African Conflict Resolution POL4254


Course Description from the syllabus:

The prevention, management and resolution of African conflicts constitute a major challenge for the international community, including the United Nations (UN), which has mounted multiple multi-billion dollar peace operations on the continent. Despite the peace dividends from those operations and other interventions, large segments of the African population continue to live in deadly conflict zones. This course will explore the African conflict resolution experience. Topics will include the structural roots of African conflicts, the institutions, mechanisms, key players, and performance of the continent’s evolving conflict resolution architecture, and positive and negative lessons from intermediation in selected major African conflicts.
