Conflict Trends 2004/3


Focus on Terrorism

"The evaluation of Africa’s response to terrorism is not intended to see the war on terrorism as the only important security issue facing Africa. This issue also intends to assist us in seeking alternative means of dealing with conflicts around the world. It is these alternative ways that need to be researched and discussed in order to ensure that the noble goals of universal peace and stability are realised."
