About the publication:
This Compendium contains key
official documents on peace and security in Africa
covering the period between 1963 and the end of
2005. The Compendium is part of an evolving Series
on Peace and Conflict in Africa published by the
United Nations-affiliated University for Peace (UPEACE).
The main objective of the Series is to make material
which can be used by African universities in courses
dealing with issues of peace readily accessible
to lecturers, students and researchers.
This Compendium is a joint publication
of the Africa Programme of UPEACE and SaferAfrica.
It shall be used in conjunction with other publications
in the Series, particularly the collection of extracts
from seminal texts contained in Conflict Prevention,
Management and Resolution in Africa: A Reader.
Publications in the Series so far
include a Compendium of Key Human Rights Documents
of the African Union as well as Human Rights, Peace
and Justice in Africa: A Reader. Publications on
themes such as peace and development, gender and
peacebuilding, media and peace, non-violent transformation
of conflict, regional integration and peace, and
endogenous methods of mediation and peacebuilding
are also envisaged.
