Africa's Peacekeeping Problem: Whose job is it to keep the peace?

As an African Union summit opens, leaders can rejoice at growth figures revised upwards for sub-Saharan Africa to more than 5.3%. Foreign investment in Africa is also shooting up. However, talks will be dominated by the new fires the continent has to put out - be it in neighbouring South Sudan, or in the Central African Republic, where former colonial power France is stepping in. So why have African peacekeepers not been able to restore order on their own?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis

By François PICARD
