Summary
Focuses on the role of mediation and peacekeeping in managing violence and political crises, looking at new ideas and institutions emerging in the African space, as well as at the structural and institutional obstacles to developing a truly robust conflict management capability in Africa. In the end, the stakes are too high in terms of human lives and regional stability to allow these obstacles to paralyze peace processes. This team of authors, approaching the issues from a wide range of perspectives, recognizes the enormity of the stakes and offers concrete recommendations on how to end conflict and lay the groundwork for building peace in Africa
