Summary
A spate of military coups from 2008 to 2010 in Mauritania, Guinea, Niger, and Madagascar raised the specter of a return to military rule in Africa. While the subsequent resumption of civilian government in Guinea and Niger has reduced these concerns, evidence of military influence in politics remains widespread across the continent. Military acceptance of civilian authority remains a missing piece of Africa's democratic transition puzzle. While often perceived as an unwanted restriction on the purview of the security sector, the doctrine of democratic civilian control of the military boosts the legitimacy, capabilities, and performance of the armed forces. The practical realization of this doctrine requires Africa's parliaments to assert and exercise more robust control and oversight of the security sector
