Confronting Africa's Anguish
Africa has been afflicted with brutal, prolonged conflicts that capture our attention, but almost incomprehensibly resist negotiated resolutions. Examining common elements in the origins and nature of these conflicts can give us insight into their intractability, suggest paths to peace, provide criteria for effective international interventions, and reveal lessons for preventing recurring conflicts.
Thomas Hull is Metzger-Conway Fellow and Warburg Professor International Relations at Simmons College.
