The Sahel region has been wrecked by governance, conflict, and insecurity for years. The response of the African Union has been criticized for being inadequate and inordinately focused on a militaristic response. In this context, Crisis Action and the Institute for Peace and Security Studies plan to organize a virtual seminar on the African Union’s engagement with the Sahel crisis. The seminar will explore the AU’s political engagement in relation to the ongoing conflict in the Sahel, with a focus on Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso.
Keynote speaker:- Prof. Anouar Boukhars, Professor of Political Science and International Studies at McDaniel College, Maryland, USA.
