Mali Crisis Resources (from ASA News)

ASA News 43.2 Mali Crisis Resources
May 28, 2012

Mali experienced a coup in late March, followed quickly by a declaration of independence by MNLA rebels in the country’s north. As the country’s future remains uncertain, many academic specialists on Mali and the region are offering useful analyses:

  • The African Arguments blog (a joint project of the Social Science Research Council and the Royal Africa Society) has run several excellent analyses of the Mali crisis.
  • Northwestern University Department of Religion PhD candidate Alex Thurston writes the very insightful Sahel Blog.
  • Haverford College political scientist Susanna Wing wrote about the crisis in Foreign Policy and was also interviewed by NPR, the BBC, and RFI.
  • The Center for Global Development’s Todd Moss explained the causes of the crisis at UN Dispatch.
