Excellent articles on Peulh (Fulani) mobilization in central Mali

These are in a book Biographies de la Radicalisation: Des messages cachés du changement social edited by Mirjam de Bruijn that just came out in 2018. (Gated on project Muse, here.) The first is by Modibo Galy Cissé and traces the path of Hamadoun Kounfa towards becoming leader of one the numerous insurgent group (if he indeed is still alive!). (Another paper of Cissé’s is here.) Lots of interesting details and a thoughtful and clear introduction to the many issues in the Peulh community.  The second is more traditional conflict analysis, by Boukary Sangaré.  Both are well worth reading!
