A second section analyzes more precisely the regional operations of FOMUC and MICOPAX, deployed for a decade in the CAR as a regional response to rising insecurity and instability. A third section, finally, discusses the major challenges that affect the realization and effectiveness of the Central African regional approach to peace and security.
