Abstract:This article examines the role of the United States in post-Cold War African security issues in the 1990s. It analyses the impact of the African Crisis Response Initiative (ACRI) and the reactions to ACRI from the continent - from the OAU, ECOWAS and influential countries like Nigeria - given the efforts being made by African governments to grapple with their own security concerns. It concludes with a tentative assessment of the possibilities for ACRI's effectiveness and its prospects for achieving credibility among African governments and civil society.
