THE FIRST NATO MISSION TO AFRICA: DARFUR

Glen Segell

Abstract


NATO answered a call for assistance from the African Union (AU) in their
AMIS mission in the Darfur region of Sudan in April 2005, providing airlift and
training in conjunction with the European Union until the end of the mission in
December 2007. This was the first time that NATO entertained a task on the African
continent. NATO undertook the mission on humanitarian grounds without invoking
any treaty and without any member state’s security being under any direct threat.
This was a milestone in NATO’s history, and it provides a case to understanding
regional alliances, regionalism and the development of trans-regionalism.
