The increasingly complex threat of insurgent violence across Africa poses an important test for security cooperation and strategic partnerships for peace. In their article for Accord, Keenan Govender, Katharine Bebington, and Andrea Prah argue that to promote peace and stability in Africa through networked multilateralism, the UN must to forge strong relations with Africa’s Regional Economic Communities (RECs).  They discuss the African Union Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) developed in 2002, and those of several other African institutions as opportunities for ‘networked multilateralism’ in Africa, where regional and global institutions can work together to pursue peace and stability on the continent, including in peace support operations.
