THEME: MANAGING POLITICAL TRANSITIONS AND STRENGTHENING RESILIENCE AGAINST VIOLENT EXTREMISM – CASE OF WEST AFRICA
High Level Expert Panel Meeting

This symposium requested by the President of the Republic and organized by my department was intended to encourage exchanges between high-level experts on issues as essential as the management of political transitions and the worrying question of violent extremism which, more than ever, threatens our populations and the stability of the States of the Sahel and the whole of West Africa.

Allow me, in this respect, to thank you very sincerely for agreeing to arrange your agendas, despite the health crisis, in order to respond to our call for contributions, thanks to your experiences. , to the construction of more peaceful societies and to better thought out, participatory and shared political governance in the service of the general interest in West Africa. By participating in this work, you have taken sides for the stability of our region and agreed to contribute your stone to the effort to preserve and build peace in West Africa. Peace in Africa depends on the pacification of our regions and you have all understood this.

This symposium, whose work was organized around three main Panels, enabled us to understand and grasp all the possible connections between violent extremism and political transitions, the evolution of security dynamics and issues of state building and integration processes in Africa.
