Africa between Internal Reform and External Intervention

20 Jan, 2012

Conference Concept Note:

Are there competing visions for a post-Cold War Africa?  And, indeed, competing institutions and competing powers that seek to put those competing visions in place?  

There is new urgency to these questions, as a string of internal crises has given rise to an array of African and external interventions in places as far apart as Libya and Ivory Coast, Darfur, South Sudan, and Kenya's Rift Valley, and Northern Uganda and Somalia.
