The Sahel region continues to be a source of concern, as porous borders provide a fertile ground for armed separatist and Islamist groups, and conflicts in Mali, Nigeria and the Central African Republic have seen the French play prominent military and diplomatic roles. But France also faces accusations of interference and 'continued imperialism', a charge it denies. Was intervention in Mali the next stage of power projection by the West aimed at access to natural resources in Africa and in competition with China?

In this panel discussion led by Jonathan Steele, Sustainable Security programme Director Richard Reeve discusses the role of France and other western powers in Africa, and if we can expect continued conflict.

 

The first part of the discussion can be found here.

Richard's latest briefings on the subject are available here:
