As Mali is working to establish peace, concerns are being raised regarding the risk of recurring conflict and displacement if a “peace” agreement is brokered without a meaningful involvement from opposition groups and Malian society at large."
A new brief released yesterday by IDMC voiced concern for the tens of thousands of internally displaced people (IDPs) and their host communities in Mali’s south.
On a recent mission to Mali, IDMC met a worrying number of IDPs who described the place they used to call home unsafe and their living conditions in the cities in the south unbearable.
Internally displaced Malians who sought refuge in the south are in a deteriorating situation. With no employment or savings, many face the threat of being forced to flee again.
