The latest institutional crises in Guinea Bissau and Burkina Faso, as well as the continuing Boko Haram deadly attacks, reminds once again, of the prevalence of a deep and real insecurity in the Sahel. A regional insecurity connected to global insecurity. That insecurity and the political stagnation are also a few of the consequences of some governments’ arrogant behavior. A behavior that nurtures violent extremism. The security response should certainly be maintained and enhanced though on a more professional basis and also broader in its scope through political action.

In the United Nations’ quest for peace, the decision to create the Peacebuilding Commission, the Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO), and the Peacebuilding Fund in 2005 was hailed as a significant achievement. However, five years later, the first review of this peacebuilding architecture was characterized as one of unrealized hopes.

After months of open and overt diplomatic and other pressures by the international mediation on the belligerents, the remaining Malian parties have finally met and formally signed a new Peace Agreement on 20 June 2015 in Bamako.
