In the monitor this week, we begin with an article by Andrew E. Yaw Tchie, Senior Research Fellow at NUPI, about the recent political turmoil in Sudan. The article tackles the question of why the civilian-military transition in Sudan has been so troubled and what needs to be done in order to restore stability in the country.
This is followed by an article by Asia Jane Leigh, a researcher at the Global Committee for the Rule of Law, focussing on China’s increased security role in the Sahel. The article unpacks China’s interests in the Sahel and the reasons why we are witnessing a gradual increase of China’s military presence in the region.
Finally, we have a piece written by ACCORD’s Savannah Wilmot, Adam Randera and Caitlin Broeders, which reflects on the outcomes of the intergenerational dialogues that have taken place this year, the challenges to youth participation and the role that young people can play in building peace and security in Africa.
