About this book

The book probes major security and governance trends in Africa’s Great Lakes region since the 1990s. It examines political dynamics in key states – Burundi, the DRC, Rwanda, and Uganda – as well as the role of international actors such as the AU, the EU, and the UN, thereby providing a unique perspective on efforts towards regional peace and prosperity. The authors suggest that while the region has made tremendous progress, it faces continuing challenges (including reversals in governance) that threaten future regional security.

Gilbert M. Khadiagala is Jan Smuts Professor of International Relations at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

Reviews

“This book makes an invaluable contribution to a better understanding of the complex dynamics of persistent instability and conflict in the Great Lakes region. I strongly recommend it as essential reading and a reference to inform future policy.” (Ambassador Roger Meece, Former Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to the Democratic Republic of the Congo)

“This volume adds onto the existing rich literature on the politics, governance, and security of Africa’s Great Lakes region. The diverse topics covered and conclusions made, make it a must read for all those who follow the goings-on in the region.” (Dr Kasaija Phillip Apuuli, Makerere University, Uganda)

“Well-researched and policy-relevant, this volume offers refreshing insights into the nexus of war, armed conflict, security, peacebuilding, and governance in Africa's Great Lakes region and the continent more generally.” (Professor David J. Francis, University of Bradford, England)
