Coups in Africa: Why They Happen and What Can (Not) Be Done about Them

Blogbeitrag | 2023

  • Abstract

    Military coups in Africa are on the rise again. The trend is being driven by acute political crises, traditionally politicized militaries and self-reinforcing regional dynamics. German and European policy should address the root causes, and the West should avoid short-sighted geopolitics and revise its Africa policy. Importantly, instruments should be tailored according to local needs.
