David Kilcullen Discusses Counterinsurgency Lessons for Africa

In this video by Africa Center for Strategic Studies, David Kilcullen examines the growing focus of contemporary insurgencies on peri-urban areas, the aim of insurgents to isolate citizens from government services and security forces, and the frequent transformation of insurgencies to criminal trafficking networks focused on revenue generation. He also outlines the importance for the military to not only clear an area, but also to create conditions for a population to become self secure so that security can be maintained even without a permanent military presence.
