Book: Angola in the African Peace and Security Architecture – Luis Bernardino


This book is the fruit of a doctoral thesis at Universidade Técnica de Lisboa. It addresses the role of the Angolan armed forces in stabilising and developing the country. Moreover, its contents give us a better understanding of these forces and their relationship with the Portuguese armed forces, facilitating technical and military cooperation (TMC), also within the framework of the CPLP. It is a highly interesting, topical work for anyone regarding TMC and the CPLP as strategic tools for the assertion of Portuguese-speaking countries.”

“A book about the Angolan armed forces is a book about the history of Angola… our history, the history of a constant struggle for the development and security of a people. As the book cleverly shows, it was a struggle in which the armed forces held fast as the bastion of national identity and the central pillar of the Angolan people and state. This book is the product of a unique doctoral thesis in International Relations in Portugal. This is a historical and analytical examination of the role of the Angolan armed forces as instruments of Angola’s foreign policy. At a time when my country is a member of the United Nations Security Council, this book is also a unique opportunity to get to know Angola and her armed forces and for us to find out more about ourselves as Angolans. My sincere congratulations to the author.”
