From 28-30 April 2015 I will participate in the symposium on „The Regional Dynamics of Peace and Security in West Africa“. The event is organized by the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI) at the University of Bonn, Germany, the West Africa Institute (WAI) in Praia, Cabo Verde, the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR) at the University of Portsmouth, UK, and the Raoul-Dandurand Chair of Strategic and Diplomatic Studies, Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada. It will take place at the premises of the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAITPC) in Accra, Ghana. The objective of the event is to strengthen the network of local and international scholars working on security issues in Western Africa. At the conference I will present our ongoing work on maritime security cooperation in the Gulf of Guinea and the effects of the 2014 Yaounde Code of Conduct.
