Abstract:This book relates praxis to policy and vice versa in West Africa, where security sector governance is under serious stress. The various authors situate security sector governance within the political context; the social context: discussing the cultural traditions of the past influencing the current culture of the security sector, including the intelligence structures (human and technology) in place; the economic context: the youth bulge, and reliance on external assistance. Most of the authors refer to ECOWAS which has now assumed responsibility for the collective security of all its fifteen member states. Contents: Foreword (Major-General (Rtd.) Ishola Williams); Introduction: waging peace in West Africa: a good practices guide to security interventions in conflict situations (Abdul Raufu Mustapha); Governance of safety & security in Burkina Faso (Abdoul Karim Saidou); Security sector reforms and conflict management in Ghana: a comparative study of Yendi and Hohoe crises (Ziblim Iddi); Security sector governance in Liberia (Thomas Jaye); Conflicts and security sector governance in Mali (Chigozirim Odinkalu-Okoro & Abena Yalley-Abioye); Security sector governance in Niger (Rahmane Idrissa); When protectors become aggressors: conflict and security sector governance in Nigeria (Hussaini Abdu); Security sector governance and conflict in Sierra Leone (1991-2007) (Osman Gbla).
