Eradicate Boko Haram: mulitple actors, uncertain outcome

This note analyses the measures taken to combat Boko Haram and is the continuation of the analysis published on January 8, 2016 dedicated to the development of this group during the period 2012-2015. For the sake of clarity, we have articulated this second text in three parts: the measures taken at national level by the four countries directly affected by the attacks of Boko Haram, those taken by these States in a regional context, primarily the Commission of the Lake Chad Basin (LCBC), and the military assistance provided to these countries by the major powers, mainly France and the United States.
