Williams, Abiodun

This case study examines the causes of the Angolan Civil War, the parties involved, and their external sources of support. It then assesses the factors that prompted the parties to seek a negotiated settlement; the reasons for the stalemate, the degree to which the objectives of both sides had changed, and the role of external actors in moving the process forward; and the final stage of the negotiating process. This case can be used in a variety of courses involving international negotiations, multilateral diplomacy, African politics, the foreign policy of African states, or the theory and practice of international relations.
