Abstract:

The United States has sought to combat security threats in Africawhether terrorism or, in a previous era, communismprincipally by providing security sector assistance SSA to partner governments on the continent. Proponents of such assistance claim that it is a cost-effective tool for advancing U.S. interests on the continent while being welcomed by the African partners. By strengthening partners security capabilities, the United States can help partners deter challenges by militants and degrade and ultimately defeat those challengers that do arise.
