    Particularly in the context of internal conflicts, international law is frequently unable to create and sustain frameworks for peace in Africa. In Peacebuilding in the African Union, Abou Jeng explores the factors which have prevented such steps forward in the interaction between the international legal order and postcolonial Africa. In the first work of its kind, Jeng considers whether these limitations necessitate recasting the existing conceptual structure and whether the Constitutive Act of the African Union provides exactly this opportunity through its integrated peace and security framework. Through the case studies of Burundi and Somalia, Jeng examines the structures and philosophy of the African Union and assesses the capacity of its practices in peacemaking. In so doing, this book will be of great practical value to scholars and legal practitioners alike.

    • A novel interpretation and analysis of the emerging African Union peace and security framework

    • The first work to examine the interactions between international law, peacebuilding and the African Union

    • Case studies, which exemplify the theory in practice, provide context to the key concepts and arguments

  • Dr Abou Jeng
    University of Warwick

  • Advance praise: 'This poignant narrative brings home the urgency of listening to the African voices of human suffering. Through a variety of perspectives, Dr Abou Jeng invites us all to re-think the impact that international law and global justice can have on human and social suffering in the face of some deeply troubling world orders.' Dr Upendra Baxi, Emeritus Professor of Law, University of Warwick

    'This is a masterful and original tour de force of the unique normative and institutional frameworks of the African Union's peace-building role in internal conflicts. Dr Abou Jeng demonstrates why UN Security Council led efforts that seek to prop States up frequently fall short of the kind restorative, corrective and preventive peace-building elements that characterize the African Union's peace-building initiatives that begin from the ground-up rather than the other way around.' James Gathii, Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship and Professor of International Commercial Law, Albany Law School

    'This study of the impact of international law on conflict and peace-making in the countries of Africa, and vice versa, is an important attempt at providing clarity on a crucial issue for modern Africa as well as for the emerging international order. The book builds on the theoretical foundations of national and international law to examine specific cases of application and practice. The result is a probing inquiry into the internal and external influences generating and constraining political and legal discourse internationally, and an engagement with issues of intervention in a volatile Africa. [This] book fills a critical gap in our understanding.' Lamin Sanneh, D. Willis James Professor of World Christianity, Yale University
