Abstract:In Africa, peacemakers have established arrangements to fashion integrated militaries and police forces out of what were warring government and rebel forces. Success has been achieved because of a combination of four factors: State strength, external involvement and assistance, quality of contending forces, and management of the integration process, and failure has occurred because one or more of those factors have been absent. Since most African States in conflict are weak and failing, the final three factors take on added importance. This paper examines five cases of successful integration, viz. Burundi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe, as well as three failed integration cases, viz. Angola, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone. Notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
