The Future of the Crises in Mali: Imagining the Ways Forward (HYBRID)

Great Mosque - Djenne

Mali has been embroiled in a governance and security crisis for more than a decade. Despite more than 16,000 international troops, Mali continues to grapple with increasing insecurity (intercommunal violence, human rights violations, and violent extremism) as well as political instability, including three coup d’états. The persistence of the crises, with their domestic and international dimensions, as well as their complexity, prompts us to reflect on ways forward.  What are the challenges facing Mali today?  How might we imagine a different future for Mali?
