Addressing a key challenge in central Mali: The need for local knowledge

SIPRI launches a new Reflection film on the conflict in central Mali, calling for a better understanding of local dynamics in order to resolve conflict and build peace in the region. The film is accompanied by a series of short Spotlight interviews presenting the views of the European Union, the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) Peacebuilding Fund, the World Food Programme, and Point Sud—a research organization based in Bamako and SIPRI’s partner in Mali.
