Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism

An Africa Perspective

by T.A. Imobighe, A.N.T. Eguavoen

Seven Africanist scholars from the African Strategic and Peace Research Group in Nigeria here address the threat of terrorism in the context of the global strategic climate. The study is against the background of the altered shape of the global security equation, and the devalued utility of the notion of security through state-centric military preparedness. They posit that failure to grasp its exact nature is leading to the spread to parts of Africa hitherto regarded as relatively safe. Further the adverse socio-political conditions on the continent have increased Africa's vulnerability. They examine areas where the experiences of other regions are relevant, providing both a regional and global context. Professor Thomas Imobighe is Director of the Centre for Strategic and Development Studies at Ambrose Alli University, Edo State. Dr. Agatha Eguavoen is Reader and Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Ambrose Alli University, Edo State.
