Beyond Conflict Resolution: Managing African Security in the 21st Century signals the formal initiation of the “African Security Project” at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA Security Series). The project underscores the Institution’s belief that the problem of security in the African continent and its modes of management would continue to pose a serious challenge for students, policy makers, development experts and practitioners of African diplomacy in the 21st Century.

The worsening state of security in its various dimensions, including human, environmental and state security, is manifested by the occurrence of rampant conflicts and explosive poverty in the continent and generally by the fact that Africa scores depressingly low on all indices of socio-economic development compared to other developing regions.

Basically, this book addresses the sources, nature and consequences of African security from many perspectives internal and external, historical and contemporary. Although a number of .the contributors suggest different approaches towards redressing the question of insecurity, the emphasis, however, is on the need to evolve a regional-based capacity for managing conflicts and security in the new country unlike in the past.
