Title

Counter-Terrorism in West Africa: The ECOWAS Experience

Authors

Abstract

Terrorism has become a major security challenge for Africa with a rising number of attacks, the multiplicity of active terror networks, and the growing links between and among terror groups. Boko Haram, al-Shabaab, AQIM and ISIS are some of the deadliest militant organizations active in African countries. Africa has become conducive for the growth of terrorism in part due to the pervasiveness of the conditions such as poverty, unemployment, under-development, poor governance, and conflicts that promote its growth. However, it is the eradication of Al-Qaeda's base in Afghanistan and West Asia after the United States' war on terror after 9/11 that propelled the growth of these groups in Africa. After being driven out from Afghanistan, it has tried to find the ground in Africa which led to increased activities of AQIM in West Africa as well as its support to other terrorist organizations such as Ansar Dine, Boko Haram, Ansaru, and others through weapons, financial and ideological collaboration. Similar is the case with Islamic State which with losing ground in Iraq and Syria, is keen to establish itself in West Africa.
