IMPROVING OUTCOMES OF CRISIS AND CONFLICT, THANKS TO AN ETHNOGRAPHIC OUTLOOK

"Affected by forces like poverty, political unrest, and food insecurity, Mali is just one example of a country where crisis and conflict have led to a variety of risks coexisting, with different consequences for all of the actors involved. Assessing, prioritizing and facing all these challenges is fundamental to the success of humanitarian and peacekeeping missions in some of the places that need it most.
Ruben Andersson was in London when conflict broke out in Mali. He had spent time in the West African nation for his PhD research and he watched from afar as the country’s stability fell apart. Seeing even vital humanitarian actions scaled back, for security reasons, he knew he had to return, armed with his knowledge of Mali and his anthropologist’s point of view."
