Intrastate Conflict in Africa
Abstract: The study is to investigate the intrastate conflict in Africa and has focused largely on the following factors as causes of tension between states: undemarcated borders, irredenta or ethnicity related history, resource distribution and refugee questions, liberation wars, or conflict as diversion from domestic political and/or economic crises. There has been little attempt to examine the dynamic between subjective images that African leaders hold of each other, their perception of events and the above - mentioned pragmatic factors. As the leaders manage national interests, their perception of other elites and the events they create or shape may or may not foster an environment conducive to conflict. Through a textual analysis of elite public statements, this work examines the role of leadership perception in interstate conflicts on the continent within the past quarter century.
