S’appuyant sur des données empiriques riches et variées, ce livre porte sur les homicides perpétrés dans quatre pays d’Afrique de l’Ouest francophone. Ses auteurs décrivent et analysent toutes les manifestations de la violence criminelle – qu’il s’agisse de vengeance ou d’autodéfense, d’infanticide, de vol, ou de crime rituel – et se font un devoir d’indiquer des pistes de solution réalistes. Que nous apprennent ces données sur les particularités des homicides au Burkina Faso, en Côte d’Ivoire, au Niger et au Sénégal ? Sur les homicides familiaux ? Sur les querelles qui se terminent par la mort d’un homme ? Sur les rapports entre la sorcellerie et le meurtre ? Comment rendre plus sûrs les quartiers criminogènes des villes africaines ? Avec quels acteurs sociaux les pouvoirs publics et la société civile peuvent-ils soutenir concrètement la non-violence ? En posant correctement le problème de la violence grave et en proposant des solutions, ce livre indique le chemin à prendre vers plus de sécurité, une paix mieux assurée et un développement durable. Maurice Cusson est professeur à l'École de criminologie et chercheur au Centre international de criminologie comparée de l'Université de Montréal. Nabi Youla Doumbia est criminologue et assistant de recherche au Centre international de criminologie comparée de l'Université de Montréal. Henry Boah Yebouet est professeur et doyen de l'UFR criminologie à l'Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny d'Abidjan.

Associer l’innovation des délinquants aux développements tech­nologiques récents peut être tentant. Pourtant, les criminels ont toujours su s’adapter à l’univers changeant des technologies pour mener à bien leurs forfaits. Nouveaux produits, nouveaux modes de production ou d’approvisionnement à exploiter, nouveaux marchés ou environnements à explorer : rien n’est à leur épreuve. Pour mieux comprendre ce phénomène d’adaptation de la délinquance, pour mieux le contrer et le prévenir, les acteurs de la sécurité doivent eux aussi faire preuve d’imagination et de créativité. Les auteurs brossent un portrait fouillé du tandem « délinquant-acteur de la sécurité », ici décortiqué dans toute sa complexité, sa richesse et ses contradictions. Ils montrent les usages des nouvelles technologies que ce tandem fait dans des domaines aussi divers que la déviance sexuelle, le terrorisme, la fraude bancaire, le trafic de stupéfiants ou encore l’invasion de domicile. David Décary-Hétu est professeur adjoint à l’École de criminologie de l’Université de Montréal. Ses recherches s’intéressent à la cybercriminalité et plus particulièrement à l’incidence de l’Inter­net sur le phénomène criminel. Maxime Bérubé est candidat au doctorat en criminologie à l’École de criminologie de l’Université de Montréal. Ses recherches s’intéressent aux groupes extrémistes violents et à leurs activités d’influence.

Ce livre retrace la genèse du maintien de l'ordre en Côte d'Ivoire qui est au service de la préservation du régime politique. L'analyse de l'auteur met en relief la doctrine policière contemporaine et permet de comprendre la dynamique de l'émeute ainsi que la logique qui la sous-tend. La violence n'est pas une fatalité. Des pistes sont évoquées : la constitutionnalisation des manifestations, la transformation de la culture professionnelle des policiers et l'adoption d'une stratégie de gestion des foules basée sur les techniques de la prévention situationnelle.

Little is known about Sexual Murderers – those who kill in a sexual context. Recent studies have compared their backgrounds and characteristics with that of rapists and/or violent (non-sexual) offenders. This translation of a French original by the renowned Jean Proulx challenges existing knowledge on sexual murders, offers new tools for profiling and interrogation, and helps to establish a new research base. Current theories of sexual murder, its prevalence, reasons including attachment theories, profiling and interrogation techniques are all addressed in Proulx’s distinctive, thought-provoking style.

Experience shows that successful democratic transitions need to be underpinned by a security sector that is effective, well managed, and accountable to the state and its citizens. This is why it is so important to carefully examine security sector governance dynamics in contexts where security has often remained a 'reserved domain.' Understanding the issues and perspectives that divide political elites, the security sector, and citizens is the only way to develop security sector reform programs that are legitimate and sustainable at the national level. Through drawing on the close contextual knowledge of practitioners, researchers, and diverse local actors, this book supports this goal by analyzing security sector governance dynamics in each of the nine Francophone countries within West Africa. From this basis, strengths and weaknesses are analyzed, local capacities evaluated, and entry points identified to promote democratic security sector governance in the West African region.

The autocratic regime of Sani Abacha (1993-1998) stands out as a watershed in the history of independent Nigeria. Nigeria’s darkest years since the civil war resulted from his unrestrained personal rule; very close to the features associated with warlordism. Nepotism, corruption, violation of human rights, procrastination over the implementation of a democratic transition, and the exploitation of ethnic, cultural or religious identities, also resulted in the accumulation of harshly repressed frustrations. In this book, some distinguished scholars, journalists and civil society activists examine this process of democratic recession, and its institutional, sociological, federal and international ramifications. Most of the contributions were originally presented at a seminar organized by the Centre d’Etude d’Afrique Noire (CEAN) in Bordeaux.

There is currently no comprehensive study of the status of security sector governance in West Africa. Many efforts have been directed either at individual countries or at providing a general analysis of the state and security in Africa. This book is intended to contribute to confidence and peace-building. It develops a better understanding of the challenges of security sector governance and generates practical policy recommendations based on work conducted by West African experts.

This book is the first comprehensive analysis on the history of infrastructural development and urban policies in Lagos since the colonial annexation to date. I think that the author faced almost three challenges to write it. It was necessary to consider a long term analysis (one century and a half), to take into consideration the growing size of the city – the biggest in the south of the Sahara since the 1960s – and, finally, to inquire into three key infrastructural sectors: water supply, electricity supply and transportation system. Both fascinating and depressing issues for town planners and officials; Lagos is probably one of very few cities with more than five million inhabitants without mass transportation system.

The Southern Africa Migration Project (SAPM) launches its new series on migration and development. Migration has been an integral aspect of the labour markets across much of Africa for at least the last century, cutting across class and skill boundaries. It represents an important livelihood strategy for poor households, but is also characteristic of the better off, including many African elites. Understanding is slowly emerging of the potentially positive role that migration can play in reducing poverty and ?mobilising? the African diaspora in development. This first title in this series provides an overview of the complex political, economic and human development issues at stake around the migration phenomenon in the twenty-first century. It gives valuable factual and statistical data to inform debates on this contentious political topic. This publication is the product of collaboration between the Southern African Migration Project and the Centre for Globalization, Poverty and Migration at Sussex University. Subsequent editions are planned on HIV/AIDS, health, the brain-drain, and food security in Africa.

"With some irony, the way the USSR separated itself from its empire and its own peaceful end may seem to be its most beneficial contributions to history. These episodes are, in any case, masterpieces of history."-Jacques Levesque, The Enigma of 1989 "When, where, why did the Cold War end? How did it manage to end peacefully? The answers are in this wonderful collection of crucial historical documents, penetrating essays by experts, plus the record of a revealing symposium including former Soviet and American officials. An invaluable source book on the end of the 20th century."-William C. Taubman, Amherst College, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Khrushchevò The Man and His Era "Evocative, illuminating, insightful: This volume is a brilliant collection of documents, conversations, and essays. It is absolutely indispensable for understanding the end of the Cold War."-Melvyn Leffler, University of Virginia, G.L. Beer Prize-winning author of For the Soul of Mankind "The National Security Archive ... deserves the highest praise for its dedication to work and truth, and for overcoming numerous obstacles created by bureaucrats and other excessively cowardly and greedy custodians of the truth about the past." (From the Foreword)-Anatoly S. Chernyaev, adviser to Mikhail Gorbachev, author of My Six Years with Gorbachev "The conference held at ... Musgrove [included in this volume]...illuminated one of the most important periods in 20th century history ... The National Security Archive [has] rendered a service to historians and the public as a whole." (From the Foreword)-Jack F. Matlock Jr., Former U.S. Ambassador, author of Autopsy on an Empire About The Editors Svetlana Savranskaya is Director of Russia/Eurasia Programs at the National Security Archive.
