African Security Governance

Emerging Issues

image of African Security Governance
Africa faces a seemingly ever-increasing range of security challenges. This book is a result of research carried out over a number of years by the Southern African Defense and Security Management Network (SADSEM) on many of these new and emerging security issues, in cooperation with the Danish Institute for International Studies and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. The broad focus is on security governance – the role of state and a wide range of social actors in the areas of both human and state security. It deals with a range of sectors, themes and national case studies and makes an important contribution to debates on security sector reform. The topics covered include policing transformation, intelligence governance, regulation of private security actors, challenges of nuclear proliferation, regional security, peace diplomacy and peace missions, the relationship between development and security and new challenges in governance of the military.

Introduction

This book could have been called Southern African Security Governance: Emerging Issues, since it largely deals with southern African case studies, and with issues pertinent to security governance in southern Africa. However, we decided that because many of the issues in southern Africa are relevant for the continent as a whole, and that many references were made to the whole of Africa, it was appropriate to go with the wider title. The book certainly doesn’t claim to be comprehensive for Africa, either in scope or in theme, but focuses on some selected emerging issues relevant to security governance on the continent.
