The security-related activities of these external actors do not necessarily align with the priorities of the African states that they engage with. Their military and security activities address a range of security objectives, such as peacekeeping, counterterrorism, maritime security, and security sector reform.

However, little is known about the breadth, depth, and motivations of the activities--and what is known is piecemeal and scattered. This has contributed to the limited open discussion about the extent, motivations, and effects of external actors security activities in Africa.The Security Activities of External Actors in Africa is the first book to map comprehensively the security-related policies, strategies, and activities of some of the major external actors in Africa, including individual states (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and international organizations (the European Union and the United Nations).

This volume provides information on the policies and activities of external actors involved in Africa, including military presences, military interventions, contributions to peace operations, arms supplies, defence and security agreements, military training, other forms of military and security assistance, and the relevant economic and political relationships.Mapping the diverse security-related activities of external actors in Africa is a first important step towards understanding Africas evolving security environment.
