New Policy Brief on inequalities in the UN mission in Mali 

African and non-African soldiers operate under very different conditions in the UN stabilization mission in Mali (MINUSMA).

The new Policy Brief, "African Soldiers are in the Firing Line", points to numerous factors that reinforce inequality in MINUSMA, and suggests a number of ways to reduce these differences.

The inequalities between European and African peacekeepers extend beyond performance, reflecting deep-seated and political discrepancies of a structural nature. Yet they manifest themselves in fundamental differences in training and equipment, and ultimately casualty statistics.

The new Policy Brief  is written by Peter Albrecht, Signe Marie Cold-Ravnkilde & Rikke Haugegaard and is a collaboration between Danish Institute for International Studies and Royal Danish Defence College.
