About this book
This book offers distinct insights into the sources of state legitimacy in Africa by incorporating an analysis of non-state actors’ role in service delivery. The author examines how citizens’ reliance on non-governmental security actors such as street committees, neighborhood watches and community police forums, shape their attitudes toward the state and their political participation. Broadly, this project contributes to our understanding of citizens' everyday experiences of crime and violence at the local level, and why they matter, politically.
