LLS 1329 - Peacekeeping in Africa

Credits: 3 hrs.
In this seminar, we shall examine the role of the United Nations (U.N.) and of the African Union (A.U.) in mediating and resolving ethnic conflict, conflict over natural resources and civil wars in Africa. The 1994 Genocide in Rwanda offers a textbook case study of a failed peacekeeping operation, due to lack of political will and narrowly-defined rules of engagement. The on-going conflict in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (Ituri, and North & South Kivu) provides another case-study of partial failure, due to under-staffing and an ill-defined mandate. The conflict in Sudan/Darfur is the only instance of a moderately-successful joint AU/UN peacekeeping operation.
