Web Seminar on Zoom Platform - Monday, 8 JUNE 2020 16.00 - 17.45 (CEST)
The international web seminar is part of the research project “Out of the security deadlock: challenges and choices in the Sahel”, conducted by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in cooperation with the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI).
In the course of the event, FEPS will also launch the new publication “Out of the security deadlock: challenges and choices in the Sahel”, which sums up the results of the research, and focuses on the governance of security sector reform (SSR) in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger and on its interlinkages with other security processes.
The research also takes stock of the actual involvement of local and non-governmental actors in SSR and how these actors operate transnationally in the Sahel, and discuss the complex challenges national governments of the region, supported by international partners, are faced with. Last but not least, it scrutinised the impact on SSR of the European Union (EU), other European countries, regional organisations, and the US.
The outcome of the research will be presented by the main researchers, Bernardo Venturi, Senior Policy Advisor at IAI, and Nana Toure, sociologist and independent consultant. Subsequently, there will be a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session
