White Book of the Civil Society for Peace and Security in Mali

Livre Blanc de la société civile pour la paix et la sécurité au Mali
January, 2019

This White Book for Peace and Security is the Malian civil society's contribution to (inter)national security and development strategies in Mali. It seeks to bring forward the perspectives of local populations in the design and implementation of these strategies. Building on locally collected perceptions, the White Book presents a bottom-up analysis of the country’s most urgent security challenges and provides tailored recommendations for policymakers to achieve long-term stability in the country. 


The data presented in the White Book is derived from three years of quantitative and qualitative research conducted by SIPRI and its Malian partner, the National Civil Society Coalition for Peace and the Fight Against Proliferation of Small Arms (CONASCIPAL).
