Sahel & West Africa: Outlook for terrorism threat to foreign businesses


Risk Advisory is pleased to invite you to a briefing on the terrorism threat facing foreign businesses in the Sahel and West Africa. We will be holding this event in Paris on Wednesday 11 September.

Jihadist groups are becoming more active in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. They are also expanding their operations into new parts of these countries. And Al-Qaeda has shown its ability to target foreign interests in the Sahel and West Africa. Regional counter-terrorism efforts appear to be doing little to curb the activities of jihadist groups. And countries beyond the Sahel – such as Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal –  are also exposed. 

At this briefing, we will discuss the strategy of jihadist groups in the Sahel and in West Africa. We will provide an assessment of which countries are most exposed to this threat, including some that have not been previously targeted by jihadists. Finally, we will give our outlook for the effectiveness of security forces in preventing attacks and degrading the capabilities of terrorists.

Places are limited and attendance is strictly by invitation only. We will publish podcasts in both French and English after the briefing. If you would like to receive a briefing podcast, please register via the registration link.
