Костелянец С. В.

The book The New African Civil-Military Relations (Pretoria, 2015, 213 p.) contains a selection of papers dedicated to discussing the nature of the relationship between civilian and military institutions in the context of democratization processes in African countries.

The collective work aims to analyze various aspects of civil-military relations (CMR) on the examples of Libya, Benin, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Lesotho. Most of the papers were initially presented at the 13th International Conference of Africanists "Society and Politics in Africa: Traditional, Transitional, and New", which took place on May 27-30, 2014 at the Institute for African Studies, Moscow.
