It focuses on the responses to that conflict by France and various international organizations such as the African Union, the Economic Community of Central African States, the European Union, and the United Nations. The chapter describes the CAR case suggests that competition between international organizations can delay an adequate response to a conflict and can lead to massive security problems on the ground. It provides a key role in deciding whether there is a rapid response or not. The chapter outlines the organizations’ mandates to demonstrate that overlapping mandates are one source of inter-organizational competition, which in the case of ECCAS-AU relations led to massive problems on the ground.
