This seminar reviews recent changes in the nature of conflicts in Africa and considers how conflicts have ended and the mainsprings of ongoing ones. The seminar will also consider the evolution of US relations with these countries in conflict. There will be a particular focus on the strategies of the new US military Africa Command and their impacts on the internal politics of these conflicts and on conduct of US relations with Africa.
