n Institute for Security Studies Papers - The OAU and African Subregional Organisations - a closer look at the 'peace pyramid'

Volume 1999, Issue 36
  • ISSN : 1026-0404



The aim of this paper is, firstly, to try and place African subregional organisations (and their member states) in a security context, and to identify their perceived place in conflict management endeavours. This is followed by the generation of a few general guidelines for action, and the suggestion of some structural issues that need to be addressed in an effort to enhance the role of subregional organisations and to better define reltionships between these and the OAU.
