Determinants of Regional Organisation’s Global Role in Peace and Security
This paper presents a conceptualisation of the determinants of the influence that regional organisations have at the global level in the area of peace and security. It is aimed at initiating and provoking debate on the understanding of the factors that are preponderant in shaping the manner in which regional organisations exert influence at the global level in the realm of international peace and security. The factors or determinants treated include the willingness of the regional organisation to act, the acceptance of its actions and its capacity to discharge such peace related tasks. The determinants are contingent on ten sub-determinants.
