De toekomst van oorlog en vrede in Afrika: drie trends

Is Africa still the 'war-torn continent' or can we see a change to peace and stability? In her contribution to the Clingendael Spectator series 'Africa: 60 years of independence' ASCL researcher Lidewyde Berckmoes describes three trends in interventions for peace and stability in Africa. 

Read the article (in Dutch).

This is the fifth article in the Clingendael Spectator series on 60 years of independence, that coincides with the Africa 2020 year. Read the first article, 'Africa after colonisation: succes of failure?', written by Kiza Magendane, knowledge broker of The Broker, and the second article, about the political prospects for Africa, written by ASCL researcher Jan Abbink. The third article, about the immense population growth, was written by ASCL researcher Ton Dietz. The fourth article, written by Alle Dorhout (Dutch MFA), dealt with the relationship between Africa and the Netherlands.
