North Africa Regional Dynamics

NSD-S Hub Workshop
May 27, 2019

Stability in North Africa (NA) is highly influenced by regional dynamics as well as external factors. Challenges to stability arise from diverse factors such as economic development and unemployment, energy security, migration and demographic pressures, trafficking, radicalization and terrorism. A comprehensive approach to understanding these drivers is necessary in order to identify effective mitigation strategies. In order to facilitate discussion, the workshop broke them into two main topics, economic developments and security challenges; however, it was repeatedly emphasized that the impacts in one domain certainly influence the other. In fact, the group all agreed that economic difficulties magnify the impact of other challenges such as lacking social cohesion, acting as a threat multiplier for instability.
