Rwanda, DRC, South Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, Darfur, Central Africa
Republic, Nigeria, Mali.…Africa has been repeatedly experiencing ‘wars’,
‘genocide’, ‘ethnic cleansing’ and ‘wars on terror’, especially since the 1990s.
As a result, millions of innocent people have been victimized through death,
displacement, sexual violence and kidnapping etc.
Why has Africa remained unstable for a lengthy period despite various
efforts made by ‘international community’ to solve conflicts?
Before we discuss how the ‘international community’ can stop these
atrocities to bring peace, it is important to have a correct understanding of
the nature of the conflicts in Africa. Based on his extensive investigation,
Mr. Pierre Péan, a renowned investigative journalist specialised in
international politics, haveanalysed this. In particular, he revealed
superpowers’ roles and intervention, whose aspects of African conflicts
remain mostly unknown in Japan.
