Institutions for Peace in Mali: Learning from Peacebuilding in Niger

Par Adam Sandor
Centre FrancoPaix en résolution des conflits et missions de paix | Note de politique

Mali and Niger share important conflict and security characteristics. The connected nature of these countries’ security challenges calls for integrated solutions. This policy brief outlines three trends in conflict management undertaken by Malian and Nigerien governments that centre around the informal nature of security politics in the Sahel: militia use; peacebuilding co-option; and paradiplomacy. The Canadian government and its partners should support the creation of a formal conflict resolution institution in Mali that operates similarly to the Nigerien model based on informal modes of operation. Canadian policy-makers should pursue a two-pronged strategy for conflict resolution in Mali through increased involvement of Nigerien peacebuilding officials.
