About the product
When the international community responds to a massive humanitarian emergency, such as the one in Liberia, the operation that results is both complicated and short-lived. The Peacekeepers, Politicians and Warlords: The Liberian Peace Process presents a record of the environment of the Cotonou Agreement by interviewing officials in position while the recent past and ongoing events were still fresh in their minds. Through visits to Nigeria and Cote d'Ivoire it captures the Liberian politics of the first Abuja Accord. This unique book therefore presents an original account of the entire peace process in Liberia that penetrates the roles of the peacekeepers, the warlords and the politicians who were all key actors.
