Abstract:This volume results of a workshop focussing on national security implications of the rampant cross-border armed incursions in the north-eastern zone of Nigeria from Chad, Cameroun and Niger. The workshop was held in 1999 at Yola, Adamawa State, Nigeria. The cross-border banditry from neigbouring countries had intensified in 1998 and reached alarming levels in 1999, significantly posing a threat to the peace and stability of Nigeria's North-East. The volume takes as point of departure that the development and security of the contiguous sub-region are best accelerated by canvassing an integrative approach. The contributions to this volume address historical, political, administrative, environmental, ethno-cultural, economic and military aspects of the subject-matter. [ASC Leiden abstract]
