POLICY BRIEF: Assessment of the Burkina Faso Transition Process from January 2022 to September 2023

Since 2015 Burkina Faso has been confronted with terrorist attacks, which it was unable to quell under Roch Marc Christian Kaboré’s presidency. This situation provided an excuse for Lieutenant Colonel Paul-Henri Damiba’s January 24, 2022 coup d’état. However, disagreements within the military junta led to a second military coup d’état on September 30, 2022. The new leader, Captain Ibrahim Traoré maintained the ECOWAS-approved transition schedule within the new Transition Charter, which was adopted on October 14, 2022.

This policy note assesses the current transition process in Burkina Faso, focusing on the commitments, efforts and interventions of all stakeholders, and adherence to the roadmap and Transition Charter by the junta.
