Impact of COVID-19 on peace and security in Africa

As Africa prepares to confront the health-related challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the necessary measures taken to prevent the virus spreading are having major implications on economies, political governance, and peace and security. Africa faces the loss of livelihoods for millions of citizens, popular uprisings, threats of food shortages, terrorism, the halting of ongoing peace support operations, and a surge in gender-based violence.

This seminar will analyse the impact of the pandemic on existing peace and security threats and responses in Africa. Panellists will consider various dimensions of the challenges posed to governments, regional organisations and civil societies.

Dr Paul-Simon Handy, Senior Regional Adviser, ISS
