The paper by the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan (hereinafter SG) renders an elaborate diagnosis of the causes of conflict in Africa and articulates a multi-faceted remedial framework for surmounting the problems. Indeed, both the observed problems and solutions largely reflect the dominant thematic views and perspectives found in the extant literature on the African crises. Running through and interlinking the various sections of the paper is the idea of promoting human security, which the SG remarks is not only central to conflict prevention but also remains the cardinal mission of the UN.
