Abstract: Today Africa’s regions are among the world's most conflict regions. The conflicts emerging in Africa hamper the economic development of the poor countries, increase the gap between rural and urban areas, causes humanitarian crises, require a huge number of human fatalities, significant financial and military resources. African states seek to resolve them through the cooperation in the format of regional organizations that is their activities in regional organizations. The results of the research revealed that end of the Cold War, the decolonization process in Africa and related ethnic and religious conflicts, inability to share natural resources, instability of political systems, and change - the conditions which led to an abundance of conflicts in Africa. Regional organizations, being aware of the complexity of the conflict, take the management of conflicts, reconciliation of warring sides and stabilization in areas of conflict. Based on the research results, the African regional organizations effectively operate in fields of warning, monitoring, human rights, civil protection and supplying humanitarian aid. These organizations cooperate with the national government, local governments, are closest to the problems, can promptly respond, best to understand the essence of a problem compared to the international organizations. On the other hand, Member States are also interested in the completion of the on-going conflicts in the region and the solutions of regional organizations are closer and better supported by government institutions, local communities and residents. Therefore, activity of regional organizations, combining different institutional level (international, regional, national and local) interests allows achieving maximum results in the field of conflict management
