This half-day symposium seeks to identify and explore way(s) forward for Mali - a country trapped in the midst of a turmoil of insecurity, army-takeover, and geopolitics. It gathers scholars with insights from both empirical research and conceptual reflection. It is simultaneously the Swedish launching of the project Citizen Perspectives on Societal Challenges in Mali.
