Submitted Assignment from the year 2019 in the subject African Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 76.5, University of Namibia , course: African Politics, language: English, abstract: West Africa has been one of the most unstable regions in the continent. Even today, it is not completely friendly or stable and is considered fragile with possible relapses. Insurgents and terrorist attacks having further plummeted the region into doubt. Most scholars and individuals point to regional organisations to deal with the conflicts or stabilize the region. But because of the history of west Africa, the Regonal organisation ECOWAS is consideed to be relatively weak and unable to control its members.

This paper start of by pointing out these weaknesses and conclude that despite ECOWAS recently encouraging democratisation, peace and stability, it has not won the history of authoritarianism that has dominated the region for years. Further, it has not stabilised the continent and has in fact failed in this regard. This is because the organisation is considered a regime boosting organisation, and supports both authoritarianism and democracy. It has no mechanisms of dealing with democratic deficit or authoritarianism. It equally has a chance of boosting authoritarian regimes as it has of boasting democratic ones. It's therefore serving these regimes equally, making it hard for the leaders in authoritarian counties to abandon their authoritarian tendencies.
