An overview of post-conflict reconstruction models and frameworks of the marshal plan and its relevance to Africa. More specifically the study aimed to provide an overview of PCR models and frameworks in Africa, analyze PCR models and frameworks in Africa and assess the Mashal Plan in relevance to Africa.The theoretical perspective of the study deals with a bottom-up approach to state formation where there underpinning theory is Hobbes’ Consent Theory. The study utilized sources of historical/comparative data, and analytical techniques. In this study, the populations of interest were 7 Africa ambassadors based in Kenya and 4 humanitarian interventions selected for this study. The study used both secondary and primary data. Secondary data was obtained from the International Monetary Fund’s International Financial Statistics, the Central Banks of Africa, the World Bank, UNDP, The study utilized primary sources such as United Nations Resolutions, US Congressional hearings, and data from the World Bank. These primary sources were supplemented by secondary sources, including books, periodical journals, newspapers, and relevant internet websites. Primary data will be collected using an interview guide (Appendix I). Contents analysis was used to analyze the data where the findings which emerged from the analysis were used to compile the report. The study finding raises the imperative for some kind of discretion and self-control on the part of different regimes, as well as a mechanism for imposing peer sanctions on deviant regimes and countries that aid the destabilization of other countries or engaged in acts that subvert the integrity of neighbouring states. According to the study findings it is clear that post-conflict in Africa has left in their wake a litany of problems that may be difficult to resolve, even in the long run, due to lack of capacity and resources.
