Security Concerns Before Investing In Africa? – Specialized Advice From CWIIL Group

Africa’s dynamic security environment is characterized by great diversity – from conventional challenges such as insurgencies, resource and identity conflicts, and post-conflict stabilization to growing threats from piracy, narcotics trafficking, violent extremism, and organized crime taking root in Africa’s urban slums, among others.

Africa’s political environment has traditionally been a volatile one, characterised by instability, conflict, weak democratic institutions and military coups.  Socio–economic disparities and political tensions, overlaid with an abundance of natural resources, have ensured that the many of the continent’s states struggle with issues of conflict and instability. These conflicts are often hinged on several factors including poverty, human rights violations, bad governance and corruption, ethnic marginalization and small arms proliferation.

The continent has now come sharply into the spotlight for investors amidst growing questions around rising political and security risks. Amongst the key themes investors are grappling with are the mounting threats of religious extremism, the prospects of destabilising election-related violence, the growing issue of piracy as well as the potential spill-over of ethnic, religious tensions into widespread unrest. Consequently, the impact of these fundamental factors on the economic stability of countries has become critically important.

In an effort to help readers stay on top of this extensive array of security issues, ACSS  [ Africa Center for Strategic Studies ] has compiled and regularly updates a selective list of “must read” analyses of priority Africa security topics. The views expressed are those of the authors and do not represent an endorsement by ACSS or the the US Department of Defense.
