Dangers of Co-deployment: UN Co-operative Peacekeeping in Africa
David J. Francis
Ashgate, 2005 - Political Science - 175 pages
Tracing the evolution of UN peacekeeping, this engaging volume explores its historical background and, by way of pertinent case studies, focuses on the changing nature of UN peacekeeping with particular reference to Africa, a continent that has been instrumental in shaping theory and practice. The concept of co-deployment between the UN and regional/sub-regional organizations is constantly evolving, and is therefore studied in detail here. In this context, case studies of co-deployment such as Britain's IMAT, France's RECAMP and America's ACRI enable the authors to ascertain how they link to regional peacekeeping efforts in Africa. The book provides a comprehensive and critical analysis of the capacity of the African Regional Intergovernmental Organizations in collective security, peacekeeping, conflict management and resolution, and the collaboration between the UN and ECOWAS in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
