SIPRI and local partner CONASCIPAL launch a strategic vision for civil society's contribution to the Malian peace process
15 September 2015, Bamako, Mali
The impact of the Malian crisis, which began in January 2012 with a surge of armed violence in northern Mali, is felt across the country. While a peace accord was signed on 15 May and 20 June 2015, its implementation is faced with serious challenges. Achievement of a lasting peace will require commitment and contributions from a number of actors at all levels of Malian society.
