In September 2022 members of the Burkinabé armed forces toppled the country's military junta, initiating a new period of military rule in the country. The incident was the latest in a wave of military takeovers that have been occurring in Africa since 2019.

This briefing covers a number of countries that have helped to shape our understanding of military coup risk, including Burkina Faso, Chad, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, Togo, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.
