We now move on to look at Africa. In this chapter ‘Africa’ will be understood as sub-Saharan Africa.1 The grounds for focusing mainly on sub-Saharan Africa is that analysts and Northern policy-makers tend to make an analytical distinction between the northern end of the continent and the rest. The countries along the Mediterranean coast are, in one way or another, linked to the Middle Eastern security complex whereas the southern states are not (Buzan and Wæver, 2004). Moreover, they are generally wealthier than the southern countries on the continent.
