Since 1992, more than 15 United Nations (UN) arms embargoes have been imposed against African states and / or rebel groups. The enforcement of arms embargoes in Africa presents challenges to both the UN and the international community in general. Over the past ten years, the UN has sought to advance the effectiveness of its implementation of these arms embargoes by enhancing its organisational capacity and deepening its monitoring capability. This paper, by means of a comparative case study approach, seeks to analyse the monitoring and enforcement of UN arms embargoes in Africa.
