The publication looks at the most recent turn in the United States' policy in Africa. The so-called ACRI-African Crisis Response Initiative-defines the new policy outlook that restores the U.S. as the major player in Africa's political games. Backing from local client states combines with military elements and both seem to promise earliest possible intervention in emerging socio-political crises that-if unimpeded-might easily threatened international politics and American global leadership.

The author is reader in sociology and co-director of ikoplan, a research network of economics and social science at the University of Paderborn.
