Africa is one of the world’s most rapidly growing economic regions. Yet myriad transnational challenges—from the illicit trafficking to poor public health—not only threaten the continent’s positive growth trajectory, but promise to metastasize insecurities that might ultimately threaten peace and stability in far-flung corners of the globe. To prevent these threats from outstripping the benefits of our global interconnectedness, novel and innovative global partnerships that simultaneously further Africa’s indigenous security and development priorities, while meeting U.S. and global security mandates, must be identified.
