Description - Comprehending and Mastering African Conflicts by Adebayo Adedeji

Countries in Africa continue to fall prey to civil war and the disintegration of governmental authority and social order. The contributors to this book believe that a development agenda to improve people's lives and strengthen national economies cannot be effective until Africa masters its problems of governance. The book examines the complex and diverse roots of conflicts in Angola, Burundi and Rwanda, Liberia and Sierra Leone, Somalia and Somaliland, and offers historical and comparative reflections. It explores possible ways of anticipating, containing and indeed preventing new conflicts, drawing on the experience of Northern Mali, Nigeria, the part played by NGOs in Rwanda, and the role of regional cooperation. It discusses proposals for mastering conflict in future, ranging over a wide diversity of measures, including a moratorium on the importation of arms, trans-frontier development projects, political reform and governmental decentralisation.
