ECOMOG, A Sub-Regional Experience (Second Edition)

About the Book

The book was first published in 1999 mainly as a narrative of the complex dynamics of the Liberian civil war (1990-1997), and the tenuous conflict resolution efforts by ECOWAS and the international community. The second edition includes the second civil war (1999-2003) and reflects the contribution of the ECOWAS experiment in deepening understanding of the norms of conflict resolution globally. It contextualises the conflict within the broader discourse on the global sources of contemporary conflict, and sub-regional efforts to contain, transform and resolve them, towards the growth of ECOWAS as a pluralistic security community, with some yet-to-be-resolved challenges in changing the sub-region from a “zone of war” to a “zone of peace”, through meeting the expectations of peaceful change.
