EU-USA: so close, so far from Sahel 0

Brussels – In an interview with Afronline.org and Sahel media, Bérangère Rouppert, a researcher in the Group for Research and Information on Peace and Security (GRIP, based in Brussels), gave an update of the situation in Sahel, talking in particular about the strategies adopted by the United States and the European Union in the region and their impact among local and regional actors. The ambitions put forward by the international community could “lead to disappointment as soon as results are not obtained quickly or according to the initial expectations,” claims Rouppert.

Despite the progress made in Mali with Operation Serval and the presidential elections running smoothly, the fight against terrorism and poverty in the Sahel region is far from being over. Security and development remain major challenges for the region.
