Abstract:The African security regime complex constitutes a rather loosely tied together system of partially converging actors. The six empirical contributions in this special issue of 'African security' present samples of the regime complex investigating the phenomenon of convergence in a broad number of cases. The first three articles analyse convergence between European and African actors. They cover the EU, AU, ECOWAS, and France and the UK as major security actors. The second empirical section takes a more inner African perspective. Here contributions explore a number of conflict themes and regions, ranging from maritime security and unconstitutional changes in government to questions of strategic security culture. Contributions: Introduction: the African security regime complex - exploring converging actors and policies (Malte Brosig); Dissonant paths to partnership and convergence: EU-Africa relations between experimentation and resistance (Marie V. Gibert, Bastien Nivet); AU-EU: 'strategic partnership': strengthening policy convergence and regime efficacy in the African peace and security complex? (Annemarie Peen Rodt, Jide Martyns Okeke); The UK and France in West Africa: toward convergence? (Tony Chafer); Convergence on whose terms? Reacting to coups d'état in Guinea and Madagascar (Antonia Witt); Converging around global norms? Protection of civilians in African Union and European Union peacekeeping in Africa (Matthias Dembinski, Berenike Schott); Communities of security practice at work? The emerging African maritime security regime (Christian Bueger); Converging actors and policies: mediocre by nature? Some cumulative findings (Malte Brosig). [ASC Leiden abstract]
