An epic, atypical and strategic study
The aim of the event is to present the following research:
What 800 Sahelians have to say. Perception study on the drivers of insecurity and violent extremism in the border regions of the Sahel, under the direction of Reda Benkirane. The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue / United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), 2016.
This research has been conducted in eight countries and involved a hundred of social scientists and 800 inhabitants from border areas which are the most exposed to armed violence and insecurity.
The research reports (an international report and eight national reports available in French and English) can be downloaded from the research notebook:
Radicalization, violence and (in)security in the Sahel
Radicalisation, violence et (in)sécurité auSahel*
* Preliminary version of these reports can be found in the UNDP related website : https://www.sahel-frontieres.org/en/publications/analysis/perception-studies
