Ministerial Meeting on the Implementation of the Mali Peace Agreement
20 Sep 2017 -  Two years after the signature of the peace agreement, when interim arrangements were foreseen to end and attention to be redirected towards preparations for the presidential elections of 2018, the peace process has fallen short of expectations, hampered by a lack of trust between signatory parties, the absence of a clear vision for the implementation of the agreement, as well as recurring clashes between signatory armed groups and deteriorating security situation in the north and the centre. Building upon the Ministerial Meeting held on 23 September 2016, the event will aim at stressing the urgency of developing a strategy and clear timelines for the implementation of the institutional and security sector reforms envisioned by the agreement until the presidential elections of 2018.
