Summary
"'Towards an African peace and security regime: continental embeddedness, transnational linkages, strategic relevance' provides an informed and critical reflection on the adequacy of the emerging African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) to the medium- and long-term challenges and opportunities of conflict prevention, management and resolution in Africa. Complementary to the editors' 'Africa's new peace and security architecture: implementing norms, institutionalising solutions' (Ashgate 2010), this volume revolves around three main areas of focus: the continental 'embeddedness' of norms, values and processes required for the gradual coming into shape of the African peace and security regime; its transnational linkages as well as the wider collective security environment; and the empirical analysis of the connections between the continental level and the regional economic communities with case-studies on ECOWAS, SADC and COMESA"--provided by publisher
