Professional and well-trained military and security establishments that are subject to democratic oversight have an important role in providing the stability and security needed for broad-based, equitable development. In addition, the burden of peacekeeping on the continent is increasingly falling on African militaries. For these reasons, the GCA has organized a series of colloquia on security and the military in Africa, focusing on the changing role of the military and new challenges to security that African countries face.
