Introduction to Peace Studies and Research in Africa

What is the focus of Peace Studies in Africa?

While studying Peace in Africa, we should focus on the realities both traditional and post-modern of African land. The way African people relate and solve their conflictual issues is different from other people world wide. With regard to the genocide that happened in Rwanda in 1994, we may not be right to assume that we may use any methods from Europe or Asia while solving the interpersonal problems and use them to reconcile Rwandans conflict analysis training course In this regard, Peace in Africa is argued to be brought about by the protection by the military, solving inter-tribal misunderstanding and build coalition programs.

However, in this page, I argue that the people local citizens themselves have the power and privileges to bring about peace in their local areas especially in the Sub-Saharan Africa.

We shall look at it in more details in the upcoming days.
