Saferworld’s Warpod episode 6: Recalibrating external missions to the Sahel

In this episode of the Warpod, we pair with the Project for the Study of the 21st Century (PS21) to discuss whether no intervention would be better than the current interventions in the Sahel. Abigail Watson and Delina Goxho are joined by Ornella Moderan, Head of Sahel Programme at the Institute for Security Studies in Bamako, and Nina Wilen, Africa Director at Egmont Institute in Brussels.  

They discuss recent developments in the region, including the ‘double coup’ in Mali, the assassination of President Déby in Chad and the attempted coup in Niger. They also consider how the many international actors involved in the region, including the EU, the UN, France and the UK, should change their approach.
