West Africa – A stocktake on the COVID-19 pandemic

An indicative outlook on the impact and future potential, based on more than 40 interviews with experts from the West African region

The COVID-19 pandemic hit many of the sub-Saharan African countries on their path toward growth and stabilisation, and like all other countries globally, they were completely unprepared.

EU Military assistance under the new European Peace Facility

Over the last few years, the European Union (EU) has begun a process of reflection that should lead it to reform its aid policies for peace and stability. In doing so, it would like to extend its competence in the field of military assistance. At first glance, this objective appears simple. However, it is not. Indeed, when the Union ventures into the world of defence, things generally tend to become more complicated. A common, though contested, interpretation of the European treaties is that the EU cannot finance the military sector through its standard budget1. To circumvent this obstacle, it has therefore decided to launch, from 2021 onwards, an instrument financed by the Member States on an ad hoc basis, with an exclusively military vocation: The European Peace Facility (EPF)

Une loyauté achetée?

A propos de la mutinerie des forces de sécurité en Côte d‘Ivoire

Au cours des trois semaines passées, les grèves et mutineries ré-pétées des forces de sécurité et des services publics de Côte d’Ivoire ont révélé le mécontentement profond d’importants groupes du secteur public envers le gouvernement de cet Etat d’Afrique de l’Ouest. Les causes de cette insatisfaction ne sont pas exclusivement financières et ont le potentiel à moyen terme de perturber sérieusement le développement jugé généralement positif de ce pays depuis la fin de la guerre civile en 2011.

Zur Meuterei der Sicherheitskräfte in der Elfenbeinküste

Die seit nunmehr drei Wochen periodisch auftretenden Streiks und Meutereien der Sicherheitskräfte und des öffentlichen Dienstes in der Elfenbeinküste offenbaren eine tief sitzende Unzufriedenheit von Teilen des öffentlichen Sektors mit der Regierung des westafrikanischen Staates.
