Governance and Border Security in Africa

edited by Celestine Bassey, Oshita Oshita

Governance and Border Security in Africa addresses issues related to the strategic role of African borders in fulfilling regional aspirations in integration, security and development in the twenty-first century. The 23 chapters bring to the fore the multi-dimensional challenges that confront African governments with a view to providing a basis for clearer policy options at the national, sub-regional and regional levels. The book is especially relevant to the redefinition of Africa's peace and security architecture in the context of the regional integration project.
