Event Description

The last two decades have been very challenging for Africa in terms of security threats and their management. Evidence of these problems are most evident in the Darfur crisis in Sudan; the election crises in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Cote d’Ivoire, the 2011 uprisings in North Africa; the problem of maritime piracy in Somalia; crises in Nigeria’s Niger Delta, Plateau, North-East geopolitical and several others. The security threats posed by each of these problems are as complex as the questions arising from their management by local and multilateral security actors. It is within this framework that our proposed conference intends to interrogate the challenges of national and international security in our globalized world and the aggregate useful lessons from our collective experiences.

It is thus necessary for us to pose some African-specific questions. Which groups constitute security threats in African States? What are their demands and strategies? How do they secure local and diaspora support? In what ways do the activities of these groups affect the international image of African States? How the security sector in Africa is dealing with these groups? What form of synergy has this necessitated? What roles are being played by civil society in engaging these groups? What gaps are left to be filled? Who is responsibility for filling these gaps?
