Dr Ansorg – Securitisation strategies to prevent conflict diffusion in Tanzania and former Zaire

In the latest edition of the Journal of Contemporary African Studies, Dr Nadine Ansorg writes about the issue of while many studies dealing with the problem of militarised refugees analyse when and how militarised refugees lead to a diffusion of violence, it is unclear what conditions contribute to the avoidance of it. This paper tackles this issue by linking securitisation theory to research on militarised refugees and war diffusion and thus offers new insights into the conditions of prevention of conflict diffusion.
