The Challenge of Stability and Security in West Africa (Africa Development Forum)

The Challenge of Stability and Security in West Africa (Africa Development Forum) by Alexandre Marc
English | June 19, 2015 | ISBN: 1464804648 | 215 Pages | PDF | 16 MB

Since independence, the West African sub-region has been an arena for a number of large-scale conflicts and civil wars, as well as simmering and low-intensity uprisings. Contrary to perceptions, West Africa in its post-independence history has experienced fewer conflict events and fatalities from conflict than the other sub-regions on the continent. The turn of the millennium has witnessed the recession of large-scale and conventional conflict, and it has ushered in new and emerging threats. The specters of religious extremism, maritime piracy, and narcotics trafficking threaten to
undermine some of the progress achieved in recent years.
