The prevention, management and resolution of African conflicts constitute a defining challenge for the international community, including the United Nations (UN), which has mounted multi‐billion dollar peace operations on the continent. Despite the peace dividend from these 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 record of the continentʹs evolving conflict resolution architecture, and positive and negative lessons from intermediation in selected major African conflicts.
