This chapter provides a baseline for comparing the evolution of peace and security norms and practice within the African region and internationally. The bulk of the chapter covers notable international interventions in the post-Cold War period, specifically the United Nations responses to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait as well as humanitarian crisis and conflicts in Somalia and the former Yugoslavia. It also analyzes the evolution of UN peace and security policy through the Agenda for Peace and subsequent reports as well as the creation of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. It ends with a comparison of developments at the regional and international levels to show that peace and security norms and practices in Africa often emerged in tandem or prior to similar developments at the international level.
