#5  S01.E05 - Mali's human rights crisis

Have you ever thought about what it is like to grow up or live in place that is in a constant crisis? Terrible reports of war, terror and human rights violations?
Today, we want to take you on a trip to West Africa. More precisely, to Mali. Unfortunately, we often associate Mali with war, terrorism, ethnic tension and crisis. However, today, we would like to paint a clearer picture of the situation on the ground.
Our host Nangamso Kwinana is joined by Alioune Tine, who is, amongst many other roles, the current United Nations independent expert on the situation of human rights in Mali since 2018.
