The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) established in 1990, a peace force, the ECOWAS Monitoring Group (ECOMOG), to help resolve the Liberian civil war. This force is considered as a model for future African peacekeeping forces, the idea of which has significantly evolved during the first half of the 1990s, and is supported by the international community. The effectiveness of such forces, based on the ECOMOG experience, is thought to be dependent on the availability of resources and on training. This thesis discusses organization design and civil-military relations considerations to take into account when shaping future African peacekeeping forces. It makes recommendations toward improving effectiveness.
