Peacebuilding, Power, and Politics in Africa

Peacebuilding, Power, and Politics in Africa
(Book Number 14)

This CCR book is a critical reflection on peacebuilding efforts in Africa. The authors expose the tensions and contradictions in different clusters of peacebuilding activities, including peace negotiations; statebuilding; security sector governance; and disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration. Essays also address the institutional framework for peacebuilding in Africa and the ideological underpinnings of key institutions, including the African Union, NEPAD, the African Development Bank, the Pan-African Ministers Conference for Public and Civil Service, the UN Peacebuilding Commission, the World Bank, and the International Criminal Court. The book is a joint project between CCR and the Centre of African Studies at the University of Cambridge.
