In this paper, Dr. A. Sarjoh Bah and Dr. Kwesi Aning, address three critical transnational challenges, referred to as the "triple threats" confronting West Africa, namely: governance, drug trafficking and small arms and light weapons. They contend that the combined effects of these threats could undermine the security and stability of the entire sub-region. The paper therefore focuses on policy responses by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in confronting the triple threats and offers specific recommendations on how these responses can be enhanced.
