Abstract:

This report of Africa and U.S. National Security focuses on domestic and international crisis and conflict potentials in Africa which may affect U.S. interests. As background for the study, U.S. and other foreign interests in Africa are defined and some of the principal historical determinants of African instability are examined. The discussion then deals with the potential conflicts in the major African regions. Subsequently, the various factors which influence the stability of the continent are analyzed on a functional basis. The several regional and functional analyses conclude with a series of implications for U.S. security interests. These findings are summarized here, reorganized and amplified only for purposes of clarity.
