Title: فاعلية آليات الاتحاد الافريقي لحفظ وفرض السلم والأمن الإقليميين في أفريقيا
Author: حنان عامر عثمان أحمد
Abstract: This research is deals with the Effectiveness of the African Union mechanisms towards international peacekeeping and peace-enforcement in Africa (1963-2004). The focus is on the role of the African Peace and Security Council as an important mechanism of the African Union in its effort in conflict resolution and settlement in Africa. Peace and security represent top priority for the continent. The research methodology consisted of three elements: Firstly, an evaluation and assessment approach in addition to descriptive and comparative approaches; secondly, dependence on secondary sources as well as limited primary sources; thirdly, a strategy that handles peace and security as one unitary variable. The research built around one main hypothesis: the more the Council depends financially and logistically on forces outside Africa such as the great powers and international organizations, the more its ability becomes weaker in the continent’s conflict resolution and settlement. The researcher concluded that the obstacles relating to funding and foreign interventions have weakened the mechanisms of the African Union in resolving conflicts of the continent. Despite its sincere desire in ending Darfur Crisis, for instance, the African Peace and Security Council has to depend on the international community for supporting its decisions; this is because the Council does not have adequate resources and experiences in running internal conflict operations. The researcher recommend that the African Union revise the funding strategy of the African Peace and Security Council as a condition for achieving goals and overcoming obstacles relating to conflict resolution and settlement.
