Africa today suffers from too much political unrest and violent conflict. The contributors to this edited collection recognize a missing link in efforts to foster democracy, and with it political stability and peace, in Africa's developing countries: Democracy can be sustained only where effective means for resolving citizens' disputes exist both within and outside the formal legal system. The writers whose articles appear here—scholars, practitioners, and peace advocates—present their varied knowledge of conflict and war in Africa and strategies for introducing and implementing mediation, from Sierra Leone to South Africa. This volume is a model exchange of insights and ideas in the important field of conflict resolution as applied to Africa.

Anmeldelser

«...Conflict Resolution and Peace Education in Africa will surely become a useful reference tool for the peacemakers and peacebuilders of sub-Saharan Africa.»

Journal of Conflict Studies

«The volume is a much-needed investigation into the complexities (but also graspable realities) of conflicts in Africa and an accompanying revelation of the specifically African approaches available for resolving the continent's conflicts peacefully.»

African Studies Review

«After more than a generation of regaining their sovereignties from the respective European colonial rulers, African states' troubled journey toward unity and stability is still fraught with many bumps in the road. This timely book should be compulsory reading for all who care about Africa and its future.»

G N. Uzoigwe, Mississippi State University
