Zones of Conflict in Africa: Theories and Cases by George Klay Kieh Jr.,Ida Rousseau Mukenge



By George Klay Kieh J. Ida Rousseau Mukenge. Zones of Conflict in Africa: Theories and Cases. By George Klay Kieh J. Torn by ongoing civil and military violence, Africa presents a challenge to scholars interested in the root causes of conflict. Among the additions are the chapters entiled Theories of Conflict and Conflict Resolution, The Context of Civil Conflicts in Africa Civil Conflicts in Africa: Patterns and Trends, and Conflict and Conflict Management in the Great Lakes Region of Africa. Clearly, conflict is an inevitable mainstay of human societies and their interactions.

Zones of Conflict is modest in intent, scope, and results. Kieh’s initial chapters seek to establish a framework for analyzing conflict and its resolution, specifically civil conflict, defined as disagreement between domestic actors – government and private groups – over issues of all kinds (p. 3). Hence interstate conflicts and those between substate actors are excluded, and violence is viewed as a means rather than a distinct type of conflict.

Theory and Literature: In their excellent work on Zones of Conflict in Africa, George Kieh and Idah. In his book, War, Patterns of Conflict, Barringer argues for multiple causation of war, noting that any explanation of armed conflict in terms of a single factor represents a gross oversimplification that is likely to lead to ill-conceived policy action. 19 In his analysis, Barringer asserts that there are patterns of factors which condition the origin, development and the termination of conflict.

Torn by ongoing civil and military violence, Africa presents a challenge to scholars interested in the root causes of conflict. Each conflict is unique, but overall they exhibit common patterns. The contributors of this book employ an eclectic array of current explanations of civil strife and how to resolve it. The first half of the book provides the relevant theoretical background. Theories of conflict and conflict resolution, the larger context of African strife in Africa, and patterns and trends of conflict are discussed. Shifting from the general to the particular, the remaining chapters of this volume gauge the accuracy and usefulness of the current thinking on conflicts by grounding it in case studies drawn from the Great Lakes Region, Liberia, Nigeria, and Zambia.
