Abstrakt

Since the end of the Cold War, the monopoly of legitimate organized force of many African states has been eroded by a mix of rebel groups calling for more political autonomy or a greater share of the national resources, violent extremist organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda or the Islamic State, and self-defense groups created in response to the rise in organized violence on the continent.
