Resolving the Chadian Political Epilepsy: An Assessment of Intervention Efforts

"This situation report analyses and presents an update on the domestic and international responses to the Chadian crisis. It concludes that though the current policy approach is certainly not a panacea to the Chadian crisis, it is a good starting point. Whilst the present policy approach suffers from some content and design flaws, the principal challenges and problems facing the current peace efforts are piecemeal implementation and the absence of a coordinated and integrated mechanism to ensure implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The report begins by examining the competing policy debate; then it examines the actors and their interest; the policy interventions and political negotiations undertaken so far, and finally, it explores possible scenarios and proposes some policy options to resolve the Chadian crisis."
