Abstract:This special issue of African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review (ACPR) is devoted to the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA). It aims, among other things, at providing a critical analysis of the nature and impact of APSA, contributing to existing debates around APSA's effectiveness, as well as helping to develop paradigms for studying the continental African peace and security system. APSA is a broad framework of peace and security norms, principles, processes, and mechanisms that the African Union (AU) has adopted since May 2001 to promote and institutionalize peace, security, and development on the African continent. APSA is a collectivist security arrangement, making every member of the AU own and be responsible for the maintenance of peace and security in Africa. Contributions: Analysis of norm diffusion in the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States (Linda Darkwa and Philip Attuquayefio); Pan-African security and Pax Africana: navigating global hierarchies (Rita Kiki Edozie); The African Union and the prevention of democratic reversal in Africa: navigating the gaps (Cyril Obi); Opportunities and challenges to financing African Union peace operations (Corinna Jentzsch); The politics of interregional cooperation: the impact of NATO's intervention in Libya on its relations with the African Union (Edward Ansah Akuffo); A curious case of hybrid paternalism: conceptualizing the relationship between the UN and AU on peace and security (Thomas Kwasi Tieku and Tanzeel F. Hakak). [ASC Leiden abstract]
