The Organization of African Unity’s priorities were illustrated not only by the Charter and institutions but also by the OAU’s responses to conflicts. The non-interference conflict management policy became firmly established, and the focus of the OAU’s work to address conflict on the continent was appealing to the parties of the conflict in finding a peaceful solution and keeping major powers out of African conflict issues. This chapter demonstrates implementation of the non-interference conflict management policy in the first decade of the OAU through an examination of conflicts in Morocco and Algeria, the Horn of Africa, and Rwanda and Burundi. It also explores the OAU response to the Nigerian-Biafran civil war and the impact of this crisis on OAU norms.
