Abstract

 

Somalia has been in a state of political and socio-economic crises since the demise of the central government in 1991. What followed after the collapse of the state was intensification of violent civil war among various political players supported by external powers. The civil war has invited the intervention of regional and international actors seeking to restore peace and order in the country. In this regard, IGAD and AU have played an important role in maintaining peace and security in the Horn of Africa in general and in Somalia in particular. By and large, it can be argued that they have been successful in mediating various competing political groups operating in Somalia to end the crises. In fact, their conflict resolution efforts failed at the implementation and consolidation stages of conflict resolution. This paper, therefore, attempts to describe and analyze the conflict resolution responses of IGAD and AU in their effort to mitigate the Somalia crises. It concludes that IGAD and AU have played a key role to maintain peace and security in the Horn region generally and in Somalia particularly. Therefore, their conflict resolution response should be taken as a commendable achievement in building peace in Africa.

Key Words: Conflict, Conflict resolution, Negotiation, Mediation, Peace Agreement.
