This report from the International Crisis Group outlines the security and political reasons for creating the G5 Sahel Joint Force (FC-G5S), 10 months after its launch. It analyses the difficulties the force faces in its implementation, particularly in its ability to co-ordinate with the other military interventions that are underway in the region. The report includes recommendations for the FC-G5S to succeed, highlighting the need for the force to be part of a larger framework that not only addresses security issues, but political and social issues as well.
