Summary:
"Complex Adaptive Systems, Resilience and Security in Cameroon comprehensively maps and analyses Cameroon's security architecture to determine its resilience. The author examines the key actors involved in Cameroon's security and evaluates the organisational structures, before analysing the different security systems that arise from the interplay between the two. He also shows how these security networks can be better conceived as complex adaptive systems, interdependent on other environmental, economic and societal systems. In this regard, security actors become security agents. Finally, arguing that security should be pursed from a resilience perspective, this book seeks to comment on the contemporary situation in Cameroon and its possible trajectory for the future. Providing a timely assessment of security in Cameroon, this book will be of interest to scholars and students of African politics and security studies"--Provided by publisher.
