About this book
This book presents a unique and comprehensive yet accessible look at security in Africa. In an introduction to the field, the author provides a review of the key security issues in Africa and offers a contemporary investigation into what security in Africa will mean for the future of Security Studies. Focusing on current—yet inherent—security challenges facing the continent, it engages with International Relation theories, security literature and primary data from Cameroon (related to other African case studies), to situate African Security Studies in International Relations and develop a concept of security for African Security Studies. It will be essential reading for students, analysts and policy makers specializing in International Relations, Sociology, African Studies and Development Studies.
Manu Lekunze is Teaching Fellow in International Relations at the University of Aberdeen, UK.
