for many years, post-independence Africa has been marked through conflicts, violence, and civil wars resulting in a displacement of civilian populations and diverse humanitarian crises. for instance, the Somali conflict, the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and the Darfur clash in Western Sudan illustrate this phenomenon. In those events, retaining the fundamental human rights of safeguard, subsistence, the liberties of social participation, and the actual stream of refugees and internally displaced folks (IDPs)--particularly ladies, teenagers, and younger people--has been obvious as insufficient. This publication bargains the subsequent: a scientific presentation of the character and scope of the crises; an evaluative description of the achievements and screw ups of governments, companies, and the foreign group in responding to the crises; a severe research of the explanation for such an insufficient reaction; and a philosophical and theological learn of uncomplicated human rights that seeks to redress those mess ups via envisioning a suitable reaction and an enduring strategy to the conflicts, displacement, and humanitarian crises in Sub-Saharan Africa.
