In creating this architecture, the African Union and the RECs tread new ground with potentially significant consequences to the lives and livelihoods of millions of Africans which remain affected by war and armed conflict. In-depth while critical chapters inform, clarify and provide critical points for reflection on the architecture as a whole as well as on each of the structures currently under implementation. This volume covers in particular: - The institutions that will carry the mandate forward - Pertinent research questions for the successful operationalisation of the architecture - The medium and long term challenges to implementation Post-graduate and research students involved in African approaches to peacebuilding and conflict resolution and regional security courses will benefit from the deep and critical engagement of issues covered by world renowned scholars and practitioners in this volume. -- Book cover."@en ;
