Africa's First Peacekeeping Operation: The Oau in Chad, 1981-1982

Synopsis

The Organization of African Unity (OAU) fielded the first successful African-mandated multinational peacekeeping operation in Chad in 1981-1982. Rather than being a strictly humanitarian mission, Mays shows how the force evolved as a foreign policy tool of Nigeria supported by France and the United States. He details every meeting/conference between 1979 and 1981 that discussed a peacekeeping option for Chad and offers an exhaustive examination of the logistics, deployment, and operations of the OAU peacekeeping mission.
