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.
