With Africa in a period of rapid change, its leaders are faced with both rethinking old notions of state sovereignty and establishing new guidelines governing when and how international actors should intervene in domestic conflicts. This collection explores the increasing interrelationship of the domestic and international security environments of African states - a trend that surprisingly has accelerated with the end of the Cold War. Combining theoretical and policy analyses with case studies, the book addresses the following questions - will the OAU and the UN, in the interest of regional security, be able to redefine notions of sovereignty, state responsibility, and norms of external intervention? Can Africa develop a regional capacity for conflict prevention and management? What roles will external actors be expected to play in African peacekeeping? The authors critically examine traditional modalities for conflict management, as well as new ideas for coping with Africa's security dilemma.
