n Conflict Trends - From the editor's desk

Volume 2000, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1561-9818


This is a very special edition of Conflict Trends one that is quite contradictory in tone. This contradictory tone, of course, underscores the complexity that is Africa. Hope and despair exist side by side on this troubled continent which is attempting to achieve a Renaissance. On the one hand, we celebrate Africa's most popular state, Nigeria, being awarded the Africa Peace Award as it celebrates its first year under civilian rule in almost two decades. On the other, we lay special focus on mercenaries and/or private security companies and analyse their impact on Africa's on-going conflicts.
