Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter draws together all the major themes and questions raised in the previous chapters and captures the relevance of these themes to the overarching purpose of the book. In particular, it considers certain issues which may adversely affect international efforts to combat some of the threats to human security discussed in the book. It also takes issue with the African Union which always remains silent in the face of tyranny by some of its members but then is quick to declare as unconstitutional military coups that overthrow such dictatorial governments. A more balanced and transparent approach to protecting human security in Africa is advocated.
