This volume is the result of an international symposium on early warning and conflict prevention, held in The Hague in 1996. Two chapters deal with Africa. They investigate the role regional organizations - whether intergovernmental, State or non-State - can play in the prevention of conflicts in the post-Cold War era. Gilbert M. Khadiagala discusses some of Africa's leading regional organizations, ECOWAS, SADC, the East African Cooperation (EAC), and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), from the perspective of transparency and leadership. Timothy M. Shaw, Sandra J. MacLean and Katie Orr emphasize the importance of a sustainable division of labour among African and non-African organizations in relation to the advancement of conflict prevention and resolution in the next millennium
