Seven Trends Shaping the Future of Peace and Security in Africa

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) reprinted on 28 June 2016 an analysis that was originally published by the World Economic Forum titled "Seven Trends Shaping the Future of Peace and Security in Africa" by Anton du Plessis, executive director of ISS, and Anja Kaspersen, head of international security at the World Economic Forum.

The authors argue that the drivers of conflict and violence in Africa include growing youth populations, high unemployment, lack of equal opportunities, urbanization, poverty, inequality, too many weapons, bad governance, and corruption. They identify seven issues that need to be addressed.
