Abstract:

This study first examines the nature of conflict in Africa, possible interventions, and the shortcomings of Africas current peacekeeping capacity. It then outlines a strategy for the United Nations Department of Peace Keeping Operations DPKO to foster both effective and legitimate peacekeeping capacity in Africa. This is accomplished by first identifying strategic objectives, then determining channels of action that can help achieve those objectives. Targeting of specific countries helps make these action channels more effective.
