SyntaxTextGen not activatedPdf study on peacekeeping in Africa is an important undertaking. At a time when Pdf States are taking on a greater degree of responsibility for promoting peace and security on their continent, the authors have provided a detailed and insightful chronicle of the efforts of African States to shoulder these burdens and of Western programmes aimed at enhancing their ability to do so.Despite the growing discussion of African affairs in American foreign policy circles, the United States is largely disengaged from security issues on the continent.

The United States (and the rest of the Western nations) is loath to contribute peacekeepers to African peacekeeping missions. African Peacekeeping Is More Diversified and Regional Than Before.
