The following research papers are authored by five Fellows of the Conflict Security and Development Group (CSDG) / ECOWAS mentoring programme who were tasked to write for a joint publication of
the Humanitarian Futures Programme (HFP) and the CSDG at King’s College London, on aspects of WestAfrican conflict prevention and disaster management from a futures perspective. These papers provide a stimulating and wide-ranging snapshot of how young
West African academics think about West Africa’s future.They outline the causes and consequences of some of the real challenges facing West Africa and highlight what ECOWAS should be cognisant of in planning ‘from the future’. By drawing on the fellows’ wider research with CSDG and their experience in work placement with the Commission in Abuja or the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeper Training Centre (KAIPTC) in Accra, these papers are intended to promote speculation on emerging
issues within ECOWAS.
