Mali: after Algiers - Conference in Bamako on 15 December 2014

Groupe URD has conducted many research and evaluation missions in the North of the country. The "Mali: shedding light on the future - Lessons from the past to prepare for after the Algiers negotiations" conference was organized in order to share experiences and findings in the run up to the negotiations which were due to resume in Algiers. The failure of the current negotiations in Algiers would be terrible for the people of the North, as it would for the country as a whole and the wider sub-region. This document presents the key messages from the event.
