The Sahel is at the heart of an unprecedented surge in violence and instability that is increasingly expanding into neighbouring West African countries.

Addressing this spiralling extremism effectively must involve denying jihadists space to govern, writes Adele Orosz, to prevent people losing trust and confidence in the rule of law and democracy.
