Podcast 6 – Future African Security

**Editor’s Note** To accompany our SOUTHCOM and EUCOM Podcasts the last two weeks, we wanted to repost a Podcast from April 2018 focusing on the security environment on the continent.

Welcome to OTH’s sixth podcast! In this episode we’re joined by Jahara Matisek, OTH Contributing Editor and Northwestern University PhD Candidate, for a conversation on the future of African security. As a particular highlight, military officers from Burkina Faso and Botswana share their perspectives on where African security is currently and where it’s headed. We cover domestic security, resource scarcity, regional and continental cooperation, and the influence of pan-Africanism.
