Abstract: The end of the Cold War and the publication of the 1994 Human Development Report brought the notion of Human Security to the fore of international relations. The African Union’s Constitutive Act which reflects a commitment to this new notion crafted the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) to serve as its institutional anchor and a testament of its political will to make the human security of African people its paramount concern. This study, by way of an assessment, sought to find out how the APSA has measured up to this commitment by investigating the pattern of its intervention in the three African states of La Cote d’Ivoire, the Central African Republic and Sudan (Darfur). Even though the APSA was able to prevent crisis in these states from escalating into full blown political chaos, it was unable to tackle the root causes of political implosion of the states in question. Consequently, civilian lives were negatively affected by disrupted political and economic systems.
