Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The formation of the Africa Center for Strategic Studies began in 1994, when U.S. European Command petitioned the Chairman of the House International Relations Committee to create a Center on African Affairs that emulated the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. Following this, in March 1998, President Bill Clinton made the first major trip to sub-Saharan Africa by a U.S. president in over 20 years. While there, he discussed promoting a U.S.-Africa partnership for the twenty-first century based on mutual respect and mutual interest, and mentioned the establishment of a center for Africa. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Susan Rice later explained that this center would "provide a forum for senior military and civilian officials to explore together complex defense policy issues and provide training to strengthen civil-military relations in burgeoning democracies."show more
