What We're Reading
October 2018 | Community-Based Armed Groups
For this month’s What We Are Reading, the RESOLVE Network surveys the literature on militias, vigilantes, armed groups, communal security-providers, and non-state conflict in Sub-Saharan Africa. This month, RESOLVE launched a new research and convening project with USAID on Community-Based Armed Groups (CBAGs) in Sub-Saharan Africa. The digest includes academic articles and datasets that map the Sub-Saharan security landscape, governance networks, the identity dynamics of non-state armed actors, their legitimacy, and ways to address political violence.
