Abstract:

This paper evaluates the capabilities of the Organization of African Unity to function as a regional peacekeeping force and seeks to determine whether such a force is considered to be in the best interests of the United States. The analysis was performed following a detailed study of literature visits to the Canadian Ministry of Defense, the United Nations, the International Peace Academy, the US State Department, OAU Headquarters in Ethiopia and New York City, and seven African nations and attendance at Canadian Peacekeeping Courses. The capability of the OAU to field such a force was examined from a military, political and economic standpoint.
