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

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.
