The Place of the Sahel Region in the Theory of Regional Security Complex

doi: 10.32565/aarms.2020.2.4

Abstract

The theory of regional security complex is one of the main theories of the regional approach of the international security system. The international organisations, the different strategies and concepts use many different definitions for the Sahel region. However, the  ongoing changes of the global and the regional security and the complexity of the crisis of the Sahel region bring up the question  whether the Sahel region is a unit based on the Regional Security Complex Theory or not? Which countries are part of the Sahel? Can it be treated as a region? In this article I will give my answer to that question.
