Celem artykułu jest wyjaśnienie przyczyn konfliktu jaki trwa w Burkina Faso od 2014 roku. Po wybuchu konfliktu zbrojnego w Mali w 2012 r., który był konsekwencją upadku reżimu Kadafiego i pomimo zaangażowania środowiska międzynarodowego w jego zakończenie, rozlewa się on na nowe tereny w Mali i poza jej granice. Od 2015 r. w Burkina Faso dramatycznie pogorszyła się sytuacja bezpieczeństwa, która w chwili obecnej wymyka się spod kontroli. Konflikt w Mali jest tylko jednym z powodów takiej sytuacji. Innymi elementami kształtującymi sytuację wewnętrzną są: odejście ze stanowiska byłego prezydenta Blaise Compaoré, działania lokalnej grupy zbrojnej Ansar ul Islam, tarcia pomiędzy różnymi grupami religijnymi i narodowościowymi oraz od lat nierozwiązane problemy ekonomiczne. Analizy zawarte w artykule wsparte są danymi dostępnymi w bieżących publikacjach wyspecjalizowanych portali internetowych, takich jak The African Center for Strategic Studies, International Crisis Group, Terrorism Monitor, Long War Journal i West African Papers.

The purpose of the article is to explain the causes of the conflict that has been going on in Burkina Faso since 2014. After the outbreak of the armed conflict in Mali in 2012, which was a consequence of the collapse of the Gaddafi regime and despite the involvement of the international community in its termination, it is spreading to new areas in Mali and beyond. Since 2015, the security situation in Burkina Faso has dramatically deteriorated, which is currently getting out of control. The conflict in Mali is just one of the reasons for this. Other elements shaping the internal situation are: resignation from the post of former president Blaise Compaoré, the activities of the local armed group Ansarul Islam, friction between various religious and national groups, and unresolved economic problems for years. The analyzes contained in the article are supported by data available in current publications of specialized websites, such as The African Center for Strategic Studies, International Crisis Group, Terrorism Monitor, Long War Journal and West African Papers.
