Third Atelier of the Sahel Security Dialogue Series
Does Ownership Mean Ownership for All?
In order to unpick the different interpretations of ownership, we wish to gather a small number of stakeholders from MINUSMA, the G5 Joint Force, EUTM, the EEAS and the French, German and British governments to discuss what challenges they see with the EUSR vision and how to bridge differences, in order to make security interventions in the region more effective. Building partner capacity is not just a technical endeavour, but it has a significant political component: how do Sahelian states and regional organisations account for such political component? Should external intervening forces behave differently with regard to ownership and participate more or less in political decision-making?
In this third and final atelier of our Sahel Security Dialogue Series we will be delving deeper into questions of ownership and political legitimacy and explore some of the concerns from both a Sahelian and European angle.
This event is jointly organised by the Multinational Development Policy Dialogue of KAS Brussels and Delina Goxho, Independent Security Analyst.
