Enhancing US Support for Peace Operations in Africa

The Council on Foreign Relations published in May 2015 a report titled "Enhancing U.S. Support for Peace Operations in Africa" by Paul D. Williams, Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University.

The report identifies four main areas that would benefit from changes in U.S. policy; they deal with personnel, finance, assistance, and policy.  Rather than working with individual African countries, the author suggests increasing the number of U.S. personnel deployed to the U.S. Mission to the African Union, which would strengthen its ability to assess, plan, manage, and evaluate peacekeeping missions.
