THE ALGERIAN SECURITY APPROACH TOWARDS THE SAHEL REGION: CASE OF MALI
SAHİL BÖLGESİNDE CEZAYİR’İN GÜVENLİK YAKLAŞIMI: MALİ ÖRNEĞİ

The Sahel security issues in Africa and the Malian crisis in particular have

brought the region to the center of the Algerian foreign policy concerns. Algiers

has been an indispensable provider of stability in the African Sahel. In recent

years, weak governances, political instability and fragile security have become

common features of the Sahelian states. The large quantity of natural resources

of the Sahel has paved a road for foreign intervention and increasing rivalry

among the world economic powers across the region. In order to safeguard the

long-term security in its backyard, in many times the Algerian leaderships have

promoted state-building and dialogue as the best ways to lift states of the Sahel

out of crisis. Neighboring countries like Mali are looking to Algiers to play an

effective role in leading conflict management efforts in the region.

Afrika’daki Sahil bölgesinin güvenlik sorunları ve özellikle Mali krizi, bu
bölgeyi Cezayir’in dış politikadaki endişelerinin merkezine oturttu. Uzun yıllar
boyunca, Sahil bölgesinde istikrarlı ve güvenli bir ortam kurmak için çaba
gösteren Cezayir, çok önemli bir rol oynamaktadır. Son yıllarda zayıf merkezi
yönetimler, siyasi istikrarsızlık ve kırılgan güvenlik yapısı, bu bölgenin en
önemli vasıflarından biri haline gelmiştir. Ayrıca Afrika’daki Sahil bölgesi, doğal
kaynaklar açısından zengin bir bölge olması nedeniyle dünyanın ekonomik
güçleri arasındaki mücadele ve uluslararası rekabet bu bölgede giderek
artmaktadır. Dolayısıyla böyle durumlarda, bu bölgede var olan devletlerin
krizden kurtulabilmesi için Cezayir, en iyi araç olarak diyalogu ve güçlü merkezi
hükümetler kurmak noktasında teşvik edici olmaktadır. Bu sebeple, Mali
gibi komşu ülkeler, bu bölgedeki siyasi krizlerin ve güvenlik problemlerinin
çözümünde Cezayir’in kilit bir rol üstlenmesini önemsemektedirler.
