Unfinished Business: A Framework for Peace in the Great Lakes (Africa Security Brief, Number 21, July 2012)
NATIONAL DEFENSE UNIV FORT MCNAIR DC AFRICA CENTER FOR STRATEGIC STUDIES
Pagination or Media Count:
Conflict in Africas Great Lakes region persists because of a complex mixture of regional politics, financial incentives, ethnic polarization, and weak and illegitimate governance. Previous peace agreements have made important contributions to stability but have only been partly successful because they have not addressed some key conflict drivers. Given the regional nature of the instability, international actors, especially those in Europe and the United States that provide significant financial support to governments in the Great Lakes, are vital to achieving a comprehensive settlement.
