A study of peace accords in selected African countries has revealed that despite the attainment of peace in the long-run, many negotiations complicate the future of state-building because they fail to address the underlying causes of conflict, according to experts' assessment at a recent meeting in Harare. Experts were drawn from the academia, civil society and development agencies to review the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) study entitled: Design and architecture of peace accords; mediation and architecture of peace processes in selected countries. The study examines peace accords in Algeria, Angola, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia-Eritrea, Guinea Bissau, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Somalia and Sudan.
