Abstract

This paper registers that peace building and conflict resolution in Africa has been a challenge and looks at mediation and conflict resolution from a different dimension. The paper argues that the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are the new hope for international peace and conflict resolution. It examines the causes of conflict in Africa and goes on to explore the challenges that the United Nations (UN) has faced in its attempt to resolve conflicts amicably. Finally, the paper outlines categorically some of the ideal strategies that the NGOs can use in their effort to resolve conflicts and build peace in Africa.

Keywords: Africa, Peace, Conflict Resolution, Non-Governmental Organizations(NGOs)
