THE FIRST NATO MISSION TO AFRICA: DARFUR
AbstractNATO answered a call for assistance from the African Union (AU) in theirAMIS mission in the Darfur region of Sudan in April 2005, providing airlift andtraining in conjunction with the European Union until the end of the mission inDecember 2007. This was the first time that NATO entertained a task on the Africancontinent. NATO undertook the mission on humanitarian grounds without invokingany 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 understandingregional alliances, regionalism and the development of trans-regionalism.
