n Africa Conflict Monitor - Letter from the founding editor

Volume 2016, Issue 02
  • ISSN : 2311-6943


ACM's February 2016 edition comes at an historic time, when two countries beset by civil war - Libya and South Sudan - are taking their first tumultuous steps toward national unity. The stability of the Southern Africa region is under threat for the first time since Zimbabwe's implosion in the early 2000s because of political-turned armed conflict in Mozambique. In Central, East and West Africa, terrorist groups are proving that they pose formidable danger in the year ahead, despite premature claims of their demise. The legacy of the 2011 Arab Spring uprising in North Africa can now be assessed five years on, with benefits accrued from the overthrow of dictators despite tumultuous developments on the path to being democratic states.
