Mitigating harm through collaboration – Protection of civilians in the Sahel
SAHEL Security Dialogue Series: Seminar #2
Following repeated calls for more effective protection of civilians by UN mission MINUSMA, and a number of organisations working in and on the region, European Union Special Representative (EUSR) for the Sahel Ángel Losada recently stated that human rights will be amongst the top EU priorities for the region. As the EU prepares to release its renewed Sahel Strategy, we intend to unpack some of the priorities identified by the EUSR and discuss them with counterparts in the region. What has worked so far in terms of respect for human rights? What is left to tackle? How can cooperation amongst very different actors be made more efficient in order to address some of the most pressing security threats in the Sahel?
