  • Christopher Wise will speak about the conflict in Northern Mali. In 2012, the Tuareg Salafist Iyad Ag Ghali and the Ansar Dine, along with AQIM (Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb), MOJWA (the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa) and other jihadists took control of Northern Mali and declared the short-lived state of Azawad. This talk will focus on Iyad Ag Ghali’s failed jihad, as well as his transformation from a secular Tuareg nationalist into a militant Salafist. The speaker will also look at reasons for the ongoing conflict in Mali.
