Mali: Another War on Terror?

Dr Roland Marchal ( Sciences Po, Paris)

From the beginning until now, there have been many ambiguities on what the challenges of Mali's crisis are. The French approach, paradoxically, has more to do with liberal interventionism than a copy/cut of technics used in other wars on terror. Elections in Mali, celebrated as a strategic breakthrough, may appear as an ambivalent progress. While the security stakes are getting more regional, there is a sense that statu quo more than aggiornamento is still on the top of the agenda for Malian political elites.
